AUK students will be recognized as agents of change in Kurdistan and globally,
where their innovative spirit, values of inclusivity and diversity, and intellectual
excellence impact economic, social, and political progress.
The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) supports AUK students on their path to excellence.
OSA works to ensure that students graduate with a co-curricular and extra-curricular
university experience that ensures their acquisition of the soft skills and leadership
skills necessary to become agents of change in Kurdish society and beyond. This includes
the cultivation of a dedication to purpose-driven action, where students are encouraged
to expand their global mindedness, inclusivity and ethical community service.
As AUK grows and adapts, so does the engagement and development of our student life.
While we expand our department and respond to the needs of our student body, we recognize
the value in implementing a philosophy of holistic success. While acknowledging that
university is primarily a place of learning and an academic journey, we believe that a
student’s success story happens in conjunction with everything else outside
the classroom - building skill within the workforce, mental health support,
co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, community service, and a community
Every AUK student has a talent that is unique to their skills and passions, and AUK’s
Student Life platform is the place where they will find opportunities to build and expand
on these skills, in order to one day make a meaningful impact on the Kurdish community
Student Life opportunities include:
Club initiation and leadership
Independent student events
Life at AUK’s Student Residence Hall
