The International Association of Methodist-related Schools, Colleges, and Universities (IAMSCU) was created during the 16th World Methodist Conference in Singapore in July 1991, a major initiative in promoting integration, internationalization and inter-institutional cooperation within the Wesleyan and Methodist traditions of education. IAMSCU's goals are to increase the availability of educational opportunities throughout the world, improve the quality of education, and enable educational institutions to collaborate through the development of common understanding.
