From the Chairman of the Board of Trustees This annual report, and the year it reflects, is testament to American University’s strong foundation, steady financial performance, and strategic plan that provides a road map for ongoing change. Even with the recent challenges of the national economy, AU has continued to invest in its greatest assets—our students and faculty—and is creating a campus for the twenty-first century. While AU’s campus appearance is about to change as guided by the recently approved campus plan, our facilities improvements are prudently structured, are programmatically precise, and will make AU an even more attractive draw for future students and distinguished scholars while providing a more powerful presence in the nation’s capital. We have just completed the fourth year of our strategic plan, American University and the Next Decade: Leadership for a Changing World, and we are making steady progress on the plan’s 10 strategic and 6 enabling goals. While holding the line on tuition costs and increasing our investment in financial aid, over the plan’s first four years we invested some $100 million in the plan’s objectives, which reflects the board’s confidence in our goals and AU’s ability to achieve them. This investment is already showing significant progress, with new faculty hires, a stronger academic profile, teaching innovation through modern technology, institutional prominence, and new campus buildings about to emerge. As many of the nation’s finest universities have been forced to retrench, AU has marched steadily forward. Beyond AU’s astute financial planning, strategic direction, and dramatic facilities improvements, the true strength of AU is our people—a diverse campus community firmly rooted in the core values of academic achievement, social responsibility, and service and the alumni whose ongoing involvement and support is crucial to our future. Enjoy the annual report, and we look forward to the ongoing progress.

From the President American University has just completed a remarkable year, one that—in the words of our strategic plan—was transformational. Our faculty, students, and staff continued to excel. In their fields of study, our faculty continued to grow in stature and influence. Spurred by outstanding teaching and support, our students were a source of constant pride through their accomplishments in the classroom, in service to our many communities, and on the fields of play. Our staff members were repeatedly recognized by their professions for distinguished achievements. In the core elements of our institution’s mission, American University is doing important work. Our facilities future, built on the 2011 campus plan approved this year by the D.C. Zoning Commission, will create more than one million new square feet and provide as much new space as AU has developed over the previous 25 years. The AU campus will change dramatically in a very short time as we develop two eight-acre parcels into thriving parts of campus and create modern housing, student amenities, unparalleled teaching facilities, faculty offices, and new homes for WAMU 88.5 and the schools of law and communication. Externally, the spotlight shines on AU with an array of prominent guests bringing the world to AU, capped this past year by former president Bill Clinton accepting AU’s first Wonk of the Year award. American University is and will continue to be a great resource for our city, our nation, and the world. We are testimony to what a community of smart, passionate, engaged, and active faculty, staff, and students can accomplish.

American University has always pushed boundaries. Whether it’s faculty uncovering the sociological causes of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in D.C., students fighting to rid the area’s rivers of pollution, or alums working tirelessly to end poverty, the people at AU have never shied away from challenging the status quo—or themselves. Now, with the D.C. Zoning Commission’s approval of its campus plan, the university enters a new phase of carefully planned construction that will help create an environment to push those intellectual boundaries even further. “We will develop as much space in new facilities during the next five years as we have in the last 25 years, and the results will be truly transformational,” said Don Myers, chief financial officer, vice president and treasurer. A few highlights of that transformation: North Hall construction and an addition to Nebraska Hall will bring much-needed residential spaces to AU’s main campus. The School of Communication will move into the remodeled and thoroughly modernized McKinley Building. WAMU will move into a renovated 96,000-square-foot building at 4401 Connecticut Avenue NW. The Washington College of Law will move from Massachusetts Avenue to AU’s eight-acre Tenley Campus, just a block from the Tenleytown-AU Metro station. New buildings, with underground parking for 400, will increase the law school’s space by 50 percent. East Campus development will incorporate a mixed-use complex of six buildings, including three residence halls, academic and administrative buildings, the Admissions Welcome Center, and underground parking. As AU president Neil Kerwin noted, “This outcome truly will enable American University to begin a new chapter in its history.”

FUTURE OF When it comes to pushing boundaries, there’s no better example than the School of Communication’s new home—AU’s iconic McKinley Building. McKinley will be transformed into a sophisticated hub of digital classrooms, learning labs, and distinctive public spaces, all accessed through a contemporary glass entrance. But the building’s historical façade and up to 75 percent of its structure will be preserved. This pairing of past and future, of legacy and state of the art, reflects SOC’s commitment to providing students with the latest technology along with a solid foundation in communication theory and practice. The move to McKinley will more than triple SOC’s current space. And because of AU’s dedication to sustainability, the highly ranked school will strive for LEED* Silver certification. SOC’s new home will contain several cutting-edge features: •

Malsi Doyle and Michael Forman Theater. The 150-seat theater will be a state-of-the-art space for film screenings, master classes, and national conferences and symposia.

Media Innovation Lab. Advancing SOC’s educational philosophy of convergence across disciplines, the multimedia lab will provide a place where communication strategists, filmmakers, and journalists come together to create content.

Digital classrooms. Faculty and students will meet in high-tech classrooms and a focus group teleconference suite.

Former AU trustee Michael Forman generously donated $1.5 million for the theater, and his earlier challenge fund was vital in underwriting architectural plans for the building. The campaign to raise additional funds for SOC will be ongoing during the construction phase. “McKinley will provide a world-class home for a world-class community of students, faculty, and staff,” said SOC’s new dean, Jeffrey Rutenbeck. “For the first time in its history, the School of Communication will have a dedicated place to bring together and amplify the innovative energy that has defined SOC since its inception.” *Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design

Peace and stability can only last if improving the environment is one of the things you do to shore up the peace process. JANE GOODALL


Teaching for the test is exactly what we should do as long as the test reflects what we want them to learn.



JANE GOODALL Speaking at AU on September 21, 2011, International Peace Day, the world-famous primatologist and anthropologist said a sense of urgency is what keeps her traveling 300 days a year to promote peace and conservation. Goodall recalled that she had observed chimpanzees in the field a full year before one approached—and reached out to touch her. MICHAEL BLOOMBERG Joining the mayors of Los Angeles and Chicago at AU, New York City’s mayor spoke March 2, 2012, during an education forum hosted by education secretary Arne Duncan and moderated by NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. Bloomberg defended the role of testing in public education and the rights of parents to have access to data on school performance.





VETERANS Almost 200 veterans of the armed forces call AU home base. For the second year in a row, G.I. Jobs magazine named American University a Military Friendly School, a designation honoring the top 20 percent of colleges, universities, and trade schools nationwide that are doing the most to embrace U.S. veterans as students. The ranking is based on stringent benchmarks that evaluate the policies and support systems used to recruit and retain military and veteran students. A source of pride for the university is its support of the Yellow Ribbon Program. This annual financial aid program, which AU joined voluntarily, is an agreement with the Department of Veteran Affairs to fund tuition expenses exceeding the Post-9/11 G.I. Bill benefit for qualifying veterans. That amounts to as much as $17,500 per year for each veteran. AU also helps vets navigate the maze of paperwork needed to take advantage of such benefits through its Veterans Liaison Network— a go-to network of 15 individuals in different university offices. Just as critical to adjusting to life on campus is the student group AU Vets. John Kamin, a School of Public Affairs student who served two tours in Iraq and is the group’s president, found the circle of veterans’ support vital in adjusting to life outside a war zone. “Making that transition with other soldiers and marines, other people who had been deployed to Iraq, offered me a kind of safe harbor,” Kamin said. Last fall, AU Vets widened the circle. Group members fanned out across campus to address College Writing Program classes that were reading David Finkel’s The Good Soldier, which offered vivid on-the-ground reportage of the 2007–08 surge in Iraq. “The first reporter I spoke to from the [student newspaper] said she couldn’t focus in biology [class] after that lecture,” Kamin said. “To see the kind of impact it made on students was a reward in itself.”

COMMUNITY When it comes to protecting the environment and boosting sustainability, recent AU graduate Carol Foster walks the talk. Foster, a School of Public Affairs graduate who earned a 3.96 grade point average while pursuing a long list of volunteer and community service activities, won the 2012 President’s Award. AU’s highest official honor for undergraduates, the award recognizes exceptional accomplishments that reflect American University’s ideals, including service to the D.C. area. Saying that Foster served her community is an understatement. Now a staff assistant to U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), she participated as a student in a yearlong study gauging the impact of plastic bags on freshwater ecosystems. Because of her involvement, the D.C. Council asked her to testify on behalf of the Anacostia River Cleanup and Protection Act—legislation that resulted in D.C. businesses charging customers five cents per disposable bag as a way to discourage plastic bag use. As director of the AU student government’s bike lending program, Foster opened up the free service to faculty and staff. Now, it has more than 550 registered users, annual sightseeing tours, a new locker site, and new bikes. She was so successful that Tulane University, the bicycle planning commission of Cleveland, Ohio, and other organizations sought her advice. She accomplished all this while volunteering at the Calvary Women’s Shelter, Prevent Child Abuse America, Relay for Life, and Women for Women International. “Volunteering is so important in building and maintaining a strong community because it really gets people to stop and think beyond themselves and explore how we’re all intricately connected,” said Foster. “People often think in terms of the individual, but I believe that true success can’t occur unless we work in such a way that improves the lives of those around us as well.”




LIVING SPACES You never forget your college roommates. Late-night discussions about the meaning of life. Insights into the ways of another culture. The forging of lifelong friendships. Whatever the particulars, living on campus is a big part of the college experience. That’s why building new student housing, starting with the eight-story North Hall, and expanding and improving existing facilities is a top priority in American University’s campus plan. “Where and how students live during their college years can make substantial contributions to their learning and sense of connection with the university,” said Gail Short Hanson, vice president of campus life. “We want our residential facilities to provide communal spaces that facilitate student engagement and personal living spaces that satisfy students’ preferences for more privacy and multipurpose use.” On a campus where the last major housing project was finished in 1987, more student housing with contemporary designs is essential to meet growing demand from undergraduates. Each fall, about 300 students temporarily live in triples—converted from doubles—and 200 others live in nearby apartments leased by the university. Additionally, about 500 students are housed on Tenley Campus, future home of the law school. Construction of the $34 million North Hall, on the northwest corner of main campus, will be completed in the summer of 2013. The suitestyle residence hall will provide 360 beds with shared living rooms for upperclassmen, plus an 8,000-square-foot fitness center that features exercise rooms and state-of-the-art equipment. By more than doubling the fitness space on campus, this facility will support AU’s wellness goals. A three-story addition to Nebraska Hall, also scheduled to be finished in the summer of 2013, will add 150 new beds in apartment-style units. Along with the recently completed renovation and modernization of Letts Hall, these projects will significantly enhance the quality of AU’s residential community. Finally, on the East Campus complex, now site of the Nebraska Avenue parking lot, three residence halls, constructed around a quad, will house 590 students in double rooms, each with a private bath. Ground will be broken for the complex in the summer of 2014.

WAMU 88.5 is American University’s boundary-pushing news and information service. Home of the nationally distributed Diane Rehm Show, WAMU has long been a broadcasting star. Indeed, it has risen to become one of the nation’s top three public radio stations. That transformation is now complete with the award-winning station’s impending move to 4401 Connecticut Avenue in northwest Washington, D.C. As the building’s anchor, WAMU and its music service, Bluegrass Country, will occupy more than half of the building’s 96,000 gross square feet. The remaining space will be used for other university administrative and academic purposes. WAMU’s new home, ready for occupancy in early 2013, will allow the station to double its current operating space in a world-class broadcasting facility while offering first-floor, street-level visibility and underground parking. The multiplatform station, with about 787,000 listeners in the greater Washington area, has more than 120 employees and also broadcasts from 88.3 in Ocean City, Maryland, on the Delmarva Peninsula. Its websites host more than 350,000 visitors a month. “We are pleased that WAMU will soon be housed in a facility that will provide an environment for future programming growth to better serve our listeners,” said AU president Neil Kerwin. “As a valuable service to the region, WAMU is one of the best examples of American University’s commitment to multiple audiences in our D.C. community and beyond.” WAMU’s current home, a 23,000-gross-square-foot facility at 4000 Brandywine Street NW in D.C., has been the station’s home since 1993. “A first-class radio station depends on a great staff and an appropriately sized and outfitted facility,” said station general manager Caryn G. Mathes, who last summer was elected to National Public Radio’s board of directors. “Our intention to continue our growth into a broadcasting powerhouse will be achievable, and our goal of truly being a community institution can be more readily realized.”





Bill Clinton is now officially the number one wonk. Speaking January 2012 at American University, the former president accepted the Kennedy Political Union (KPU) honor of being AU’s inaugural Wonk of the Year. “I loved when people made fun of me for being wonkish because I figured people wanted a president who actually knew something,” the 42nd commander in chief quipped before thousands of onlookers crowding AU’s Bender Arena. The award, presented by KPU, a student organization, recognizes a wellknown person who embodies the characteristics AU students admire— someone who is smart, passionate, focused, and engaged and who creates meaningful change on our most important and challenging issues. Clinton is certainly all those things. In 2005 his foundation created the Clinton Global Initiative, an annual conference that convenes global leaders to tackle the world’s most pressing problems. Those meetings have brought together more than 150 heads of state, 20 Nobel Prize laureates, as well as prominent CEOs, philanthropists, and others. Members have made commitments to improving millions of people’s lives that, when fully funded, will equal $69.2 billion in value. Clinton epitomizes precisely what AU values through its wonk campaign, a way of branding what the university represents—brainy, passionate, engaged citizens committed to positive change. The campaign has won the university a good deal of media notice and a growing chorus of plaudits. Topping off those awards in June 2012 was an Emmy for best single spot commercial, which followed nine national CASE Circle of Excellence Awards—the most prestigious recognition a university can receive for work in higher education advancement and communications.


We kept telling the students what this was about and who was on the President’s Committee. People like Forest Whitaker and Yo-Yo Ma . . . I don’t think they believed us. KYLE DARGAN

We need to raise our visibility in the city and raise the perception of our quality among my peers in other business schools. MICHAEL GINZBERG


KYLE DARGAN Last spring the AU creative writing professor and award-winning poet led a group of D.C. high school students to read their poetry at the Library of Congress and later at a White House event. Dargan led workshops to prepare the students, who also published a collection of their poetry. MICHAEL GINZBERG After becoming dean of the Kogod School of Business in July 2011, Ginzberg set to work building on a strong foundation of programs, faculty, students, staff, and facilities. Part of that task involves differentiating Kogod—with its outstanding programs in such fields as international business, finance, and accounting—from its competitors.

American University was the perfect place to house this initiative because they already had a robust Russian studies program. SUSAN LEHRMAN


VERNON LOEB A local editor for the Washington Post, Loeb is a key player in an innovative partnership between American University and one of the nation’s most prestigious newspapers. Seven School of Communication students have written more than 200 bylined articles in the Post since fall 2011. SUSAN LEHRMAN The businesswoman and philanthropist, who funds AU’s Initiative for Russian Culture (IRC), worked with Sergey Kislyak (right), Russia’s ambassador to the United States, and Peter Starr (left), dean of AU’s College of Arts and Sciences, to establish a program to connect American and Russian students. The IRC seeks to overcome Cold War stereotypes of Russians and present a more accurate picture of their lives and culture.



LIFE SCIENCE Industries that will dominate business—pharma, biotech, health care, and IT—are shifting from the West to nations like China, India, South Korea, and Brazil. And that shift to global innovation is good, according to Kogod School of Business professor Tomasz Mroczkowski. Mroczkowski, author of The New Players in Life Science Innovation: Best Practices in R&D from around the World, said, “We’re witnessing a new phase in innovation, an expanded universe of global research and development.” This globalization of research and development occurred against the backdrop of the U.S. and European financial meltdowns. Investment funding shrank in the West but increased throughout Asia, where national efforts focused on boosting research. China, for example, had already begun its Torch program, which linked science and industry, created tech markets, and promoted academic entrepreneurship. This combination of financial strain and international technical expertise has driven Western life science companies to collaborate with companies from other nations. Another effect has been outsourcing. In the pharmaceutical field, for example, one study estimated that 32,000 French jobs may be at risk in the near future unless new policy responses are adopted. Large companies such as Lilly have outsourced most of their pharmaceutical functions, and Merck has closed many of its European R&D labs, choosing to partner with Indian companies for drug development. Meanwhile, by 1990 the number of Asian students receiving engineering degrees had exceeded that of the United States and Europe combined. Still, the United States will remain the most attractive high-tech market, the best destination for R&D, innovation, and universities, Mroczkowski maintained. Huge opportunities for partnering and collaborating with global firms will present themselves. “Innovation is in the network,” Mroczkowski said. “If it’s a global network and it can collaborate and exchange information—that’s going to give us some really new kinds of exciting innovations.”



NUCLEAR NONPROLIFERATION Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, keeping nuclear, chemical, and biological weapon expertise from spreading to terrorists and hostile states has been a top U.S. priority. Unfortunately, bureaucratic limitations often hobble attempts to tackle such an enormously challenging task. School of International Service professor Sharon Weiner reached that conclusion after interviewing more than 150 scientists, program managers, policy makers, and others in the United States, Russia, Ukraine, and parts of central Asia for her book Our Own Worst Enemy? Institutional Interests and the Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons Expertise. Nonproliferation programs, Weiner found, have produced mixed results. Between 1991 and 2008, for example, the U.S. government spent more than $1.2 billion to discourage proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) through a host of programs to find new industries to employ WMD scientists. Yet at best those programs created jobs for only one in five such experts. Part of the problem was goal displacement, a tendency Weiner said all organizations share. “If the goal doesn’t fit in with what they normally would do, they make the goal look like what they would normally do. Because they’re rational, they [change] the goal to something that they can demonstrate success in or that they can measure more easily.” And so some programs switched to the familiar goal of transparency. Out of nowhere, the Russians were being asked to reveal the identities of their key nuclear weapons scientists, a request unlikely to encourage cooperation. For all their shortcomings, however, the programs yielded the United States invaluable benefits, said Weiner. “Were these programs worth it? In terms of nonproliferation, probably not,” she said. “But in terms of overall U.S.-Russia relations, I think they were crucial to lay the foundation that means that Russia today still has the potential to be a partner for the U.S. And that was worth it.”


These transitions are very difficult. It’s great on one level, frustrating on another. On the one hand, a lot has changed; on the other hand, the military is still in control.



I want to make sure that the students are connected with the broader community in the fields we cover. JAMES GOLDGEIER


DIANE SINGERMAN The School of Public Affairs professor was awarded a $250,000 Ford Foundation grant to study alternative methods of housing, local governance, and urban development in Egypt.

JAMES GOLDGEIER Soon after becoming the new dean of the School of International Service in August 2011, Goldgeier, an internationally known scholar, former director of George Washington University’s Institute for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, and author or coauthor of four books, discussed his goals.


Courts care what affected communities think about fair use. . . . Now librarians are on the record with a powerful statement of their values. PETER JASZI


If you have hepatitis, which is inflammation of the liver, you’re more prone to get liver cancer.



PETER JASZI In January 2012, the Washington College of Law professor, together with Patricia Aufderheide, director of the School of Communication’s Center for Social Media, announced the release of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries. The code spells out reasonable approaches to fair use of copyrighted materials. KATHLEEN DECICCO-SKINNER In August 2011 the AU biology professor won a $381,871 NIH grant to investigate a possible link between skin cancer in mice and a missing gene. Mice lacking that gene show more inflammation than normal mice, and scientists have long hypothesized a connection between cancer and inflammation.




BOUNDARIES Twenty years ago, women pushed the boundaries of national politics. “The Year of the Woman” in 1992 saw a 70 percent increase in the number of women in Congress. In March 2012, campaign veterans of that heady time gathered on AU’s campus to show how things have changed—though not necessarily for the better. Among those veterans was AU alum Connie Morella, SPA/MA ’67, the former congresswoman from Maryland, ambassador to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and ambassador in residence at AU’s Women and Politics Institute. So why have women’s gains in Congress lost momentum since that historic year? “I think they lack the confidence factor,” Morella reflected. “They often think they need 45 PhD degrees to be eligible to run, to be qualified. Men have got more confidence. And I would add to that the poisonous rhetoric, the environment of politics. They feel, ‘Do I want to expose my family or myself to this?’” Other veterans of 1992 also weighed in on the discussion at AU: •

Sylvia Garcia, candidate for Congress in Texas: “While it’s great to celebrate Women’s History Month and look back at 1992, isn’t it regretful that 2012 will probably be remembered as the year of the attack on women? Rather than celebrating successes, we’re having to fight those elements in our country that are trying to turn back the clock.”

Josie Heath, Senate candidate from Colorado: “In 1992 we thought a woman’s place was in the House and the Senate. We think the same thing in 2012.”

Claire Sargent, Senate candidate from Arizona: “Some of us were accused of running because we were women in 1992. In fact some said we campaigned on, ‘I’ve got breasts, vote for me.’ Well, I said and I say again, ‘It’s about time we voted for someone with breasts. After all, we’ve been voting for boobs long enough.’”



JOINING THE FIGHT ON HIV HIV/AIDS infects 3.2 percent of Washington, D.C., residents over the age of 12—a rate worse than in some developing countries and among the nation’s highest. So for AU, becoming an institutional partner in the District of Columbia Developmental Center for AIDS Research (DC D-CFAR) was a chance to help our community fight a persistent and deadly disease. “Most people in the U.S. probably have no idea that there is somewhere in this country where rates are so high,” says Professor Kim Blankenship, AU’s representative to DC D-CFAR. The center, funded by the National Institutes of Health, is a collaboration between AU, Children’s National Medical Center, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and area universities. Twenty other such centers across the United States also work to create a multidisciplinary approach to detecting, preventing, and treating HIV infection and AIDS. “What makes AU unique among the other partner institutions is that we have a lot of people studying HIV/AIDS from different social science perspectives,” says Blankenship, chair of the Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences. “Whether that is an anthropologist studying migration, a sociologist studying gentrification, or a scholar in the School of International Service studying the ways these problems affect international relations, AU brings something very important to this partnership.” Such an approach is vital. While the biological aspect of health care is extremely important, promoting its benefits without grasping the social dimensions is bound to fail. “A vaccine can work 100 percent of the time,” says Blankenship, “but if people don’t to take it because of religion or suspicion of the government, it won’t work in reality.” Blankenship, whose research and publications focus on race, class, and gender analyses of health, is also director of AU’s Center on Health, Risk, and Society. The center is a multidisciplinary, university-wide group of scholars interested in researching health-related issues.

Thank You from the Vice President of Development and Alumni Relations It is my pleasure to share with you American University’s 2012 Report on Philanthropy (fiscal year May 1, 2011, to April 30, 2012). This past fiscal year has marked unprecedented change and growth at American University. While the campus undergoes its greatest physical transformation in over a decade in order to provide the best facilities for our students, the university is also strengthening its investment in its faculty and rigorous academic curriculum. We continue to make strides in our philanthropic endeavors, ensuring the future of AU as a world-class institution. Fiscal year 2011–12 has been one of our most successful to date, second only to 2009–10 upon the closing of the AnewAU comprehensive campaign. We surpassed our total cash revenue goal by 11 percent, ending at $22.6 million. Our total performance closed out the year at $26.9 million, or 21 percent over our projected target. Rising alumni donor participation played an important role in achieving such impressive numbers—this year, 11,122 alumni generously contributed to the university. Alumni engagement is strengthening on all fronts with our Alumni Relations team increasing the total number of events by 60 percent. We are thrilled to note that American University now provides 10 times more alumni programming than at the launch of our strategic plan in 2009. We were also proud to add two new affinity groups, the Black Alumni Alliance and the Latino Alumni Alliance, to forge new connections within our community. Alumni across the country and around the world were able to reconnect with AU at over 275 alumni events and through numerous volunteer opportunities. Our online presence maintains steady growth, with social media membership continuing on an upward trajectory.

President’s Circle Established in 1981, the President’s Circle honors five U.S. presidents who were friends of American University. Through the President’s Circle and its recognition levels, we gratefully acknowledge leadership in philanthropy demonstrated by American University alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. Benjamin Harrison signed the Act of Congress chartering the university in 1893. William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, and Herbert Hoover served on AU’s Board of Trustees. John F. Kennedy delivered his famous “The Strategy of Peace” speech at the 1963 AU Commencement.

Lifetime Members Lifetime membership in the President’s Circle recognizes the highest level of personal philanthropy to American University. The following individuals and couples have made lifetime contributions totaling $100,000 or more (as of April 30, 2012).

GARY SPIEGLER ENDOWMENT In 2011–12, the Spiegler fund supported Hillel programming for the National Union of Jewish LGBT Students Conference and Idan Raichel: Inside the Artist’s Studio. The previous year, Spiegler helped to underwrite a performance by SheshBesh, a screening of Defamation, and a film series, Tough Guys: A Trio of Documentaries on American Jewish Men. The Gary Spiegler Endowment Fund was established in 2009 through a bequest from Gary Spiegler, Kogod ’72, to support student programs that promote Jewish culture at American University.

Grebe Endowed Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Stephen C. Grebe, a former chair of biology in the College of Arts and Sciences, by his family, friends, and colleagues.
