So how did Schiller International get its name? Our institution was named after the German philosopher, poet and dramatist, Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller (1759 – 1805), whose work exemplifies the highest standards of ethics and the ideal of the truly educated, multilingual citizen of the world.
Geographically, campuses expanded into Europe and America. Demographically, over 100 different nationalities experienced Dr. Leibrecht’s vision of education.
Since its founding, the institution’s mission has remained focused on the value of a globalized educational environment, recognizing that international perspectives are crucial to solving contemporary problems and developing a globally literate, intercultural competent citizenry.
The short history of the 21st Century confirms the imperative of the Schiller International University Mission: “To develop international and cross-cultural competencies” in higher education.
We have continuously evolved over the decades, experiencing a growing diversity of the student body and always striving to fulfill its needs.
