Welcome to the Office of Governmental Affairs at Auburn University. Our staff serves as the primary liaison between AU and various legislative and State government offices and officials.
U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers presented a Congressional Record detailing the leadership skills and accomplishments of Auburn University student Carol Linde on Oct. 7 at the Auburn Student Center. Linde, who is this year's recipient of Auburn's Political Science Leadership Award, is a senior in the College of Liberal Arts majoring in political science and psychology and minoring in English and women's studies.
'Beat Bama, Beat Hunger' food drive begins
The annual Auburn-Alabama "food fight" has started.
For the past 20 years, Auburn University and the University of Alabama have competed with each other prior to the Iron Bowl to determine who could raise the most food for their local food bank. This has grown from a relatively small-scale event to become one of the largest food drives in the state. Last year, Alabama won with 299,398 pounds, compared to Auburn's 169,702.
This year's "Beat Bama, Beat Hunger" starts Monday and continues until Nov. 24. Results will be announced at the Auburn-Alabama game.
Forty-eight faculty and administrators from Southeastern Conference universities, including three from Auburn University, have been selected as 2014-15 SEC Academic Leadership Development Program fellows.
The Conference named DeWayne Searcy, director of the School of Accountancy in the Harbert College of Business; Bret Smith, interim associate dean for academic affairs in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction; and Ana Franco-Watkins, undergraduate program director in the College of Liberal Arts' Department of Psychology as this year's fellows.
