The excellent throughput and low background rates of FUSE enable observations of many dozens of AGN at wavelengths shortward of 1200 Å. Early FUSE observations of AGN include ESO141--G55, PG0052+251, PG0804+761, VII Zw 118, H1821+64, Mrk 352, Mrk 876, and HS 1700+64. In contemporaneous observing programs, we are also obtaining longer-wavelength UV spectra with HST/STIS covering 1150--3200 Å, and ground-based spectra from the atmospheric limit to 1 \mum, for many of the FUSE program objects. We will discuss the intrinsic properties of the observed AGN and show sample spectral energy distributions covering the 912--10,000 Å\ observed wavelength range.
