The AUCWiki is an open access tool used to promote the American University in Cairo's scholarly communications. As a supplement to the Digital Archive and Research Repository, better known as DAR, the wiki is a collaborative space for students, faculty, and staff to create resources, work on projects, and develop ideas. All articles are authored by members of the AUC community, and include items ranging from articles about January 25th Revolution to project documentation.
The AUCWiki is supported by University Academic Computing Technologies.

- A Guide to Designing Freshman Year Courses
- This guide introduces a systematic process for designing Freshman Year (FY) and Core Curriculum courses. It is the product of the Task Force for the Freshman Year and Core Curriculum, appointed by the Provost in Fall 2011 to envision and re-design the freshman year for AUC students so the following become more efficient, integrated and effective academic mentoring, liberal arts exposure, English communication skills, and critical thinking.
- Isqat al-Nizam
- For the past decade, Egypt has been awaiting a change in its leadership: but the dynastic successions that took place in several other Arab countries in the 1999-2000 (Morocco, Jordan, and Syria) caused many both inside and outside Egypt to believe that a similar course of events here was practically a fait accompli. That logic was abruptly overturned by a spontaneous revolt by Tunisians, whose president fled on 14 January, followed by an eighteen-day uprising throughout Egypt (25 January-11 February) which ended with President Mubarak’s resignation. This category includes articles written by American University in Cairo HIST 412 students in partial fulfillment of the requirements of the class.
