Mission and Values
Building global leaders by understanding the world and changing it!
Our mission is to immerse students in a culture of collaboration, creativity, curiosity, and critical thinking with the goal of preparing them to become future leaders and problem solvers in local and global spheres
At AUP, our academic philosophy is premised on the belief that each student is unique, with varied talents and learning styles, and as such, requires a diverse range of pedagogical strategies to maximize his/her learning process. Our faculty approach teaching from a multimodal perspective, employing: Socratic learning to facilitate discussions; blended learning to enable students to preview/review lectures online; project-based learning to promote critical thinking and hands-on learning; computer adapted learning to enable individualized growth and development; differentiated instruction to tailor teaching to students’ specific needs; and global studies to promote cultural sensitivity, social responsibilities, and global citizenship.
The learning environment at AUP is nurturing, positive, and encouraging. We keep the student to teacher ratio to a maximum of 8:1 in order to make every effort to foster success in each student. We believe that real-world learning must go hand-in-hand with classroom learning. We are committed to develop opportunities for students to engage in learning outside of the classroom setting. Ultimately, our goal is to instill in our students a sense of everlasting wonder, a spirit of exploration and innovation, the courage to persevere through challenges, and the vision to pursue their passion with gravitas and integrity.
