Nicki Pieart, assistant athletic director and head athletic trainer, is an excellent example of the “service before self ” mantra. Her dedication to serving both the campus and greater Aurora community through numerous service initiatives is admirable.
Citizenship is emphasized throughout AU, and student involvement does not go unnoticed. This year, senior defensive lineman Billy Baker has been honored by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) as a member of the 2015 Allstate Good Works Team.
A commitment to community service and helping others has always been an integral part of the Aurora University identity. We create an environment where learning happens on all corners of campus and we foster connections between the classroom, community and playing field.
A strong tradition of excellence both on and off the playing field defines the Aurora University student-athlete experience. Character, integrity and civility are as important as game-winning baskets and goals. At the core of the AU athletic experience is the health and welfare of every student-athlete.
