An educational association, the Bureau for Intercultural Education was founded ca. 1940 after reorganization of its predecessors, the Service Bureau for Education in Human Relations and the Service Bureau for Intercultural Education. Dr. Rachel DuBois had founded the former to help teachers and school administrators in the New York area set up intercultural programs. In 1937, the Service Bureau was invited to become the "Commission on Intercultural Education" of the Progressive Education Association, an arrangement which lasted until 1938, when it was renamed as the Service Bureau for Intercultural Education. DuBois resigned in 1940, and the organization became the Bureau for Intercultural Education. Its first director was Stewart Cole, who was succeeded by H.H. Giles. The group established field centers in cities such as Detroit, Michigan, led workshops for educators, and conducted scientific research. It ceased to operate in 1954.
