The American University of Nigeria (AUN) Graduate Assistant Program

The American University of Nigeria was founded in response to the need for a world-class university in sub-Saharan Africa.

The University’s mission is to provide quality education to Nigeria and Africa’s future leaders in order to equip them with the skills needed to solve development issues on the continent, and give them the knowledge needed to create solutions that will benefit their community, their country and, ultimately, the world.
