". . .the waging of peace demands the best we have, the best young men and women that we can find to put in this great effort which must go on around the world all the time."

(President Dwight D. Eisenhower at the ground-breaking of the School of International Service, June 9, 1957.)

The American University's desire to create a school to train men and women capable of responding to the challenge of the changing world was fulfilled in the fall of 1957 with the opening of the School of International Service. American University President Hurst R. Anderson secured funding from the Methodist Church for the development of the school and appointed Ernest S. Griffith as founding Dean.
