Aurora University

Aurora University is a premier, independent, comprehensive university offering over 40 undergraduate majors, 12 graduate degree programs, and an EdD program in educational leadership. Established in 1893, Aurora University is comprised of two campuses: a 32-acre campus in a tree-lined residential neighborhood in Aurora and the more than 133-acre George Williams College on Geneva Lake in Williams Bay, Wisconsin. Students at AU enjoy academic and program options characteristic of a large university, as well as the benefits of the personal attention normally associated with a small college.

At Aurora University, we describe ourselves as "an inclusive community dedicated to the transformative power of learning." In short, we believe that an AU education literally will change the lives of our students.
