Who is Prof. Gordon "Nick" Müller?
Long before New Orleans officially became Innsbruck's twin city in 1995, there was already close cooperation between the cities.
Since 1976, the International Summer School has been held in Innsbruck every year, with more than 8,000 students from the U.S. participating to date. Prof. Mueller is the founder of this successful program between the University of Innsbruck and the University of New Orleans (UNO). At that time, he moved the six-week Summer School of the University of New Orleans from Munich to Innsbruck and thus laid an important foundation for further cultural exchange between the twin cities.
The Nick Mueller Scholarship was established by the city and state in 2003 in recognition of the achievements of Prof. Gordon "Nick" Mueller.
