American Councils Announcing Dr. David Patton as President and CEO

On behalf of AUCC, congratulations to AUCC Corporate Member, David Patton of American Councils for International Education!

August 20, 2019

WASHINGTON - American Councils for International Education and its Board of Trustees are pleased to announce the appointment of David Patton, PhD, as the third president and CEO to lead the 45-year-old nonprofit. Dr. Patton's tenure as president began on August 1, 2019. For the past five months, Dr. Patton has served as acting president and CEO.

Dr. Patton will lead the nonprofit's nearly 500 employees worldwide, operating out of 39 offices to advance nearly 100 programs in 90 countries. This announcement comes at a critical juncture for American Councils, which is finalizing its strategic plan for 2020 and renewing its commitment to advancing international education through cultural, academic, and professional exchanges, overseas language immersion, and workforce development.

As president, Dr. Patton's connection with American Councils comes full circle: in 1983, Dr. Patton studied abroad on American Councils' lauded Advanced Russian and Area Studies Program (RLASP) in Moscow, Russia. Ten years later, he joined American Councils as a full-time staff member in its Moscow office.
