A new, state-of-the-art campus at American University of Central Asia (AUCA) in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, opened its doors on October 31, 2015 with the support of OPIC financing. The expansion will enable the University to expand its enrollment by 33 percent.

Access to education is vital for economic growth in developing regions. The new AUCA campus was designed to be eco-friendly and to serve as an institute for research and development in Central Asia. With access to modern technology, AUCA plans to provide technical and curriculum development support to other universities throughout Central Asia.
