Auburn University Young Professionals, or AUYP, will host its next event on June 28 from 1-2 p.m. in Room 103 of the OIT Building. This free event features a presentation with Vini Nathan, Auburn University’s interim provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, followed by a question and answer session. 

Nathan began serving as interim provost and vice president for Academic Affairs in March 2022. Since 2011, Nathan has served as dean and McWhorter Chair of the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. She is also a tenured professor of Architecture and Interior Architecture and is a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council, or DFC.

As interim provost, Nathan is the university's chief academic officer and oversees the university's tripartite mission, including providing the academic supervision of Auburn's campus. Working with faculty, staff, students, alumni and other stakeholders, Nathan ensures the university maintains the highest possible scholarly activity, outreach, and teaching and learning programs. In carrying out these responsibilities, Nathan works directly with the deans of the 12 colleges, the university's shared governance groups, university administrators, student leaders and other Provost's Office team members.

AUYP aims to connect the young professionals of the university with the upper level administrators.  Through a series of one-hour interactive programs, young professionals have the chance to hear stories and gain advice from those in influential positions across campus.
