Athletic training is one of many fields that require a level of testing or certification before graduates can officially begin their careers. And AU students have proven that they are ready to move into the professional world by ranking first in the state in Board of Certification (BOC) Pass Rates over the past three years.
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.
