Initially, Schiller College was set up in 1964 and its first campus was established in Southern Germany. The college was a huge success which is why two years later, Dr. Leibrecht broadened his vision and started two more campuses in Germany. Today, Schiller has campuses in Paris, France, Madrid, Spain, London, and in Florida, USA.
In retrospect this idea of expansion from a college to an international university has worked out very well for students, since it encourages cultural diversity among exchange students from one campus and country to another. This in turn develops in them an immense understanding of different cultures and students gain an invaluable insight into the lives of people from around the world.
But this diversity does not end with students only. The Schiller University has a very diverse faculty as well. While most of the faculty has been educated at highly respectable universities across the United States and Europe, their origins vary from almost every region of the world.
