60年强

For 60 years our mission has been to provide students from all over the globe with a life-changing university experience that crosses disciplines, 文化和边界, 无论他们选择去哪里,都能实现他们的职业目标. The American University of 巴黎, at the juncture of American educational values and a global orientation to 教学 and learning, has not wavered from the original premise of its founding: to help students question their comfort zone, step past accepted knowledge, meet people from all over the globe and meet their academic and professional expectations for themselves. We believe that only when you’re at home in the world will you be able to forge your place in it.

当劳埃德DeLamater, 40岁的前美国国务院官员, 1962年决定在巴黎建立美国学院, his idea was far ahead of its time. 事实上, 也许是因为他出生在纽约,一生中有一种明显的国际爱好, 他是一名老兵, 拥有多个国际机构的学位, 娶了一个法国女人, and lived all across Europe in his roles as a US Foreign Service and NATO officer – or his extensive observations of postwar Europe, DeLamater was quick to grasp that the world could not survive as a disparate mix of isolated countries and peoples with little connection among them. 他试图“弥合狭隘民族主义的鸿沟”,” creating an institution that would educate those ready to explore a world far beyond their birthplace.

This new project began in a series of rented rooms in the basement of the American Church of 巴黎 with an entering class of 100 students. 同时也为美国其他大学提供类似的课程, the American College of 巴黎, or ACP as it was then known, was moved by a very different spirit. Describing this first class of students, DeLamater不仅表扬了学生的学习成绩, 还有他们是如何学习外语的, 许多人都能流利地并迅速地适应法国文化. 当时美国正忙着定义自己的身份, DeLamater was promoting a learning model in which students could find their own individual identities and communities, 同时与一个国际化的大都市接触. 1962年,巴黎美国学院成立, DeLamater succeeded in establishing a place where students could push past the borders of their home countries and launch themselves into an increasingly interdependent world.
