American University in Kosovo

The American University in Kosovo is a private university located in the Germia district of Pristina, Kosovo. The university was established in 2002, and is affiliated with Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Rochester, New York.

American University in Kosovo, commonly known by its initials AUK, is the only non-profit private university in Kosovo. All classes are taught in English, and all the students are enrolled in degree programs at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), whose Associate's, Bachelor's or Master's degrees are earned by AUK students. AUK courses use RIT's syllabi and apply the same teaching and examination standards as in Rochester, although tuition fees at AUK are significantly lower than those at RIT's Rochester campus.

When it opened its doors in 2003, the university had an undergraduate class of 57 students. By the 2008/2009 academic year, AUK enrolled 464 undergraduates and 55 graduate students.

AUK also operates a division offering non-degree courses, the Training and Development Institute (TDI). TDI offers a range of courses for internationally recognized certificates in information technology, business management, and the English language.

Initial funding for AUK came from the Fund for the Reconstruction of Kosovo, which itself was funded by voluntary contributions from the ethnic Albanian diaspora to support the underground parallel institutions operated within Kosovo during the period before the 1999 NATO bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Subsequent funding has been granted by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID); by the Mabetex construction company of Behgjet Pacolli; and by the National Albanian American Council (NAAC) in the United States.

AUK's president is Chris Hall, a former state senator from Maine.
