Auburn University Young Professionals


Auburn University Professional and Continuing Education is proud to partner with the Office of Information Technology to present Auburn University Young Professionals.

Auburn University Young Professionals (AUYP) aims to provide an opportunity for connection between upper level administrators and the young professionals of Auburn. During our free one-hour interactive programs, young professionals will have a chance to hear the stories and advice of those in influential positions across campus. Attendees will also be provided the opportunity to submit questions for the speaker in advance or ask their own during the program. This series will focus on providing professional development, networking amongst peers, and collaboration of resources across Auburn University.

AUYP programs are offered at no cost to attendees. We do ask that you register for the event to ensure proper meeting space.
