American University of Central Asia - AUCA - AUCA Virtual Museum

AUCA Virtual Museum

In only 20 years AUCA has become an indispensable institution in Central Asia as it continues to lead and develop leaders for the transformation of the region. The AUCA Virtual Museum acknowledges the vision and contribution of all those who have made AUCA the best university in Central Asia, and provides a space for everyone to make a small contribution to the future home of AUCA as it opens the doors on its next 20 years.

The AUCA Virtual Museum tells the story of AUCA in five sections which are presented in detail below:

Beginnings: Liberal Arts in Central Asia
Bard Partnership

Each section displays one aspect of what makes AUCA unique: the initial energy and passion of the Kyrgyz-American Faculty; the talented and creative student body; the intrepid and successful alumni; the investment and good faith of Bard College in AUCA; and, finally, AUCA’s commitment to leading innovation and change both in the region and around the world.

AUCA would like to thank all of its local and international supporters for making AUCA what it is today, especially the Open Society Foundations and the United States Agency for International Development.

The AUCA Virtual Museum is a forum where the AUCA Community can share photos, videos, and memories from their time at AUCA. New media can be submitted by email to We encourage all alumni, faculty, and friends to send their submissions.
