Safety. Security. Marine environmental protection. Humanitarian assistance. Homeland security. Service to others—in our communities, across the nation, and around the world. These are the things that Coast Guard Auxiliarists put first every day, the missions that these volunteers have tirelessly performed for over seventy years. Auxiliary University Programs (AUP) prepares the best, brightest, and most talented college students for success in service to their community and country—inside and outside of the Coast Guard.
