CIEE Celebrates Groundbreaking for New Living and Learning Center in Berlin
We’re one step closer to transforming study abroad in Berlin! On October 17, CIEE hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for our innovative new center for living and learning, the Global Institute – Berlin. Nearly 100 guests attended the event, including local dignitaries Thomas S. Miller, minister counselor for public affairs at the U.S. Embassy Berlin, and Dr. Peter Beckers, vice mayor of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, as well as CIEE staff and local community members.
Housed in a former factory building in Kreuzberg, one of Berlin’s liveliest and culturally rich districts, the new Global Institute – Berlin offers a U.S.-style residence life program integrated with a local German neighborhood. When renovations are completed, the campus will include a spacious residence hall for up to 200 American and German students, 12 state-of-the-art lecture rooms, studio space, café, and Discover Berlin office with resources to help students get the most out of their time in Berlin.
