American University's commitment to the principles of democracy and civic engagement are reflected in its housing of many Centers working on different dimensions of the democracy challenge. These Centers and Institutes decided to join under a new umbrella group, Democracy@AU. Our goal is to promote creative synergies and ensure that our work is considerably greater than the sum of our parts.
