AIC is charting a course for the College's future through a renewed mission, vision, and core values, and the launch of a strategic plan for the next five years.
n 1885, American International College was founded with the mission to provide access to higher education. It began with the Reverend Calvin E. Amaron, who persuaded other enlightened clergy to assist in the establishment of a college for French Canadian youth. Since its founding, AIC has remained true to this vision, and adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of students. The College began admitting women in 1892, becoming the first coeducational college in the region. In the early twentieth century, AIC extended its reach to the education of all immigrants and their children and, when immigration slowed in the 1920s and 1930s, expanded its scope to providing education to transform the lives of a diverse student body.
AIC has continued to grow and strengthen its academic profile, adding programs that prepare students for professional success, which you as alumni have experienced firsthand. Now, in 2022, it is time for the College to take its next step forward in serving the modern student body.
