It was founded by the Vice President of Nigeria, Abubakar Atiku, in partnership with the American University in Washington, DC, and with a group of prominent Nigerians interested in creating a world-class, American-style University in Nigeria. The goal of AUN is not only to have the finest campus facilities, but to offer the highest quality academic programs in West Africa. The University, located in Yola, Adamawa State, welcomed its first class to the University on September 9, 2005.
