In 1998 the American University in Bulgaria based in Blagoevgrad received its single largest individual private gift, especially designated for the purchase of land and construction of a modern facility in Sofia, designed and built expressly for professional education, cultural and community events. Mr. Eliot Elieff, a Bulgarian – American living in San Marino, California, USA, was the generous donor who shared AUBG’s vision of diversity, tolerance and academic achievement, and his naming gift initiated a campaign for the construction of the Elieff Center for Education and Culture. In January 2003, the Center opened its doors for educational programs and events.
It is our aim and commitment to use this first class facility for educating, in the tradition of AUBG academic excellence, the national and regional leaders of the future. Our purpose-made building supports a learner centered environment, educational and cultural diversity, and the values of democratic participation and decision-making. We provide a superb range of high quality and innovative educational facilities and equipment supported by a team of local and international professional instructors, consultants and practitioners.
