At work in Russia's Golden Ring since 1992!

Serendipity-Russia was established in 1991 by Dr. Ron Pope as part of an effort to contribute to Russia's transition from communism to a stable and prosperous pluralist society. Building a model American house was the first major step. The American Home was dedicated on July 4, 1992. It served as Serendipity-Russia's in-country headquarters for its highly regarded English and Intensive Russian programs--and for a variety of other projects. From the beginning, the American Home staff has focused on trying to make a positive difference in the Vladimir area.

"Perhaps this is Serendipity's greatest gift - facilitating the process by which Americans can peer into another culture, however briefly, and come away with an alternately chilly and snug sense that people everywhere are similar, but also very different - and in ways that can be utterly pleasing and new."

~Professor Helen Campbell
Department of Business & Management/Department of Criminology, University of Maryland University College-Europe
(Professor Campbell has completed two intensive Russian programs with Serendipity-Russia.)
