On May 12, 2021, President Sylvia M. Burwell announced Change Can’t Wait: The Campaign for American University. This bold endeavor empowers our community to take on society’s most complex challenges. With a $500 million goal, Change Can’t Wait will create transformative educational opportunities for students, advance research with impact, and build stronger communities locally, nationally, and globally. Why us? Changemaking is in our DNA. Why now? We know change can’t wait.
