American International College

Springfield, Massachusetts, United States
Today, AIC is a private, coeducational, four-year comprehensive institution located in the geographic center of Springfield, Massachusetts. We are a diverse community, with students, faculty, and staff from a variety of backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, and countries. 



American International College was founded in 1885 by the Reverend Mr. Calvin E. Amaron, who persuaded other enlightened clergy to assist in the establishment of a college that would provide the youth of his ethnic group, French Canadians, with access to higher education. 


The mission of the College is to transform student lives through career focused learning, with a strong foundation in the liberal arts, a commitment to serving the community, and a high level of involvement in the global economy.


Research: Identify, evaluate, and recommend current and potential major gift prospects and assess their ability to financially support American International College. Provide research and analysis of biographical, philanthropic, professional, and financial information about donors and prospects.


Employees at AIC are the people who make it such a great place to work, explore, and grow. The Human Resources department at AIC is here to help foster a fulfilling, respectful work environment. If you have any questions or concerns related to employment or human resources at AIC, please don’t hesitate to contact us.


Student services

There’s a lot to think about in college, and you have your own strengths and challenges. We’re here to help with your individual needs through different services that make it easier to tackle classes, plan for your future, keep your mind and body healthy, and achieve your college and life goals.

Housing services

Students who live on campus may choose from traditional coeducational residence halls, one all-female residence hall, and residential suites (primarily upperclassmen).

Library services

The mission of James J. Shea Sr. Memorial Library is to assist the American International College community in their quest for knowledge by providing resources and services that support information literacy, encourage life-long learning and promote personal fulfillment.

ICT services

Located in Amaron Basement 12, Academic Computing’s primary role is to support to the AIC community in the use of classroom, media, and web technologies with a priority focus on academic courses and academic events. We do support non-academic, extracurricular (e.g. clubs & organizations) and special events based on availability of staffing and resources.

Medical services

The mission of Dexter Health Services, in alignment with the College’s mission, is to provide quality, convenient, and cost-effective healthcare and wellness education that helps our students achieve personal fulfillment and professional achievement.
