From October 25-29, AUSU celebrates October Pride Week! We have fantastic events lined up, including Facebook Live streams of a keynote address on October 25 by author Joshua Whitehead and a presentation on October 29 by AU Faculty member Dr Tobias Wiggins.

Also, look for a Pride-themed takeover of AUSUnights, 2SLGBTQIA+ community highlights, a Pride AUSU Open Mic Podcast, fantastic contests, and more!

To get things started, check out the Pride Executive Blog from your VP Community & Wellness Natalia Iwanek where she discusses Pride: past, present, and future.

October 16 is World Food Day, a United Nations observance which generates awareness globally for those suffering from hunger to ensure food security and nutrition for all. Food is a fundamental human right.


The theme for World Food Day 2021 is “Our actions are our future.”

If you are an AU student experiencing food scarcity, apply for assistance from our Virtual Food Assistance Program. Visit for details.
