85 Years of the Austro-American Institute of Education
Ambassador's Residence, Vienna, June 21, 2011
The Austro-American Institute of Education (AAIE), one of the oldest Austrian organizations involved in educational exchange between the United States and Austria, celebrated its 85th anniversary in June 2011. Founded in 1926 with the support of the Institute of International Education in New York, this non-profit organization has served as a test center for standardized testing, has conducted English language classes for Austrians interested in the United States, and has served as a hub for numerous U.S. college abroad programs. The reception convened representatives of AAIE’s U.S. and Austrian partner institutions as well as members, faculty, staff and friends of the Institute as part of a ten-day reunion commemorating the AAIE’s 85th anniversary.
