President's Message

Published in About

panosblaxos I am delighted to welcome you to the website of the American College of Thessaloniki (ACT).

ACT is the tertiary division of Anatolia, a private not-for-profit educational institution founded in 1886. ACT has been a bridge connecting America to Greece and South East Europe. It is one of the few institutions outside the United States with full, free-standing U.S. accreditation by the NEASC, and EU validation of its undergraduate programs.
 
At ACT, we have created a dynamic, innovative, and demographically diverse learning community that prioritizes critical inquiry, intellectual development, and breadth and depth of knowledge. At ACT, students are empowered to learn and think differently, interact with the world differently, and become catalysts for change. Our faculty is dedicated to teaching and research, and together with our staff, takes great pride in the accomplishments of our students.
 
Drawing on the model of American tertiary education, ACT seeks not only to stimulate students’ academic interests, cultural awareness, and ethical sensitivity, but at the same time equip them with the skills and knowledge required for productive employment and/or graduate studies.
 
For International and Study Abroad students Thessaloniki is a vivid, warm, human-scale city in which most feel comfortable quickly. Thessaloniki is a living laboratory where students can meet different nationalities, articulate civic values, and become alert to cultural diversity.
 
Together with the Board of Trustees, the students, faculty, staff and alumni of ACT, I take great pride in welcoming you to our academic community and I invite you to learn more about the ways and means through which you might become a part of this very special and vibrant academic community.
 
I am very proud of our students, faculty, and staff and feel confident that you will understand why as you learn more about the American College of Thessaloniki, its programs, and its future.

Panagiotis Vlachos, Ph.D
President of Anatolia College
