The International Presence of Auburn University in the 21st Century

Auburn University is not confined to the city limits of Auburn, Alabama, the state lines of Alabama, or even the borders of America. Auburn's presence spreads far and wide through alumni and faculty who have gone abroad to make the world a better place. The Auburn Alumni Association wants to stay connected to our alumni, no matter where they are. Whether through organized groups or just the presence of AU in countries near and far, we want our alumni to know they are still a special part of the Auburn Family. Check out the many places the Tigers roar and the Eagles soar!

Contact us if you have events, programs, projects, people, or any other ways Auburn is visible worldwide. We want to share what our alumni are doing around the globe....and beyond.
