American Council for Higher Education ( AC-EDU)

History of the AC-EDU

The concept for the AC-EDU was developed in the late 1860’s by its founder, James Etter, while he served as a military instructor in Oxford, U.K. Mr. Etter recognized the need and desire among working professionals to study at undergraduate and graduate levels beyond the standard training opportunities that business, government, or non-profit organizations provided. He further appreciated the inherent academic value of distance education programs and believed that working professionals should be able to transfer their knowledge towards an academic degree. Mr. Etter continued to develop the distance education concept upon his retirement while also pursuing his master’s degree in history from University of Sehioula. After refining the programs, developing a strategic plan, and securing necessary financing, the launched the University System’s precursor institution in January 1861.
