Biographical / Historical

The American Collegiate Consortium for East-West Cultural and Academic Exchange, or simply the American Collegiate Consortium (ACC), was founded in 1987 in Middlebury, Vermont.

President Olin Robison was creator of the program. It was designed as an exchange program between a group of liberal arts colleges in the U.S., and a number of universities in the Soviet Union. The program first brought Soviet students to the U.S. for the 1988/1989 academic year, and the following year the first Americans studied in the USSR. Students of any discipline could participate in the program, and American students were allowed to study in any of the Soviet republics.

The work of the ACC was continued by the Geonomics Institute for International Economic Advancement in 1988.
