SVA on the Road: The American University of Paris

Last week I had the privilege to do the first international chapter visit on behalf of Student Veterans of America. I spent the day at The American University of Paris with the SVA chapter president and faculty.

AUP is itself a wildly successful experiment in international, interdisciplinary education. AUP brings together all the best elements of the American university model—small, discussion-based classes; a collaborative relationship between students and faculty; a special emphasis on critical thinking and clear communication—with the cultural, social, and professional opportunities of one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities. Not only is AUP leading the way in assisting student veterans in overseas learning but also in assisting in the costs associated with attending a school in countries not covered by the Yellow Ribbon Program.

For those interested in obtaining their degree in higher education and want to do it in Paris, we would recommend looking into AUP!
