International Partner Institutions

REES is very active as a catalyst for expanding the international aspects of departmental teaching and research. The center administers an extensive system of bilateral and multilateral partnerships with institutions in Russia, Ukraine, and Central and Eastern Europe. These provide a base for faculty and graduate student research, undergraduate study abroad, overseas language study, training and development projects, and frequent interaction with scholars native to the region. Several externally funded programs have been funded by federal or foundation grants. The University's major international partner institutions in the region are:

REES cooperates with the University of Pittsburgh School of Law's Center for International Legal Education in hosting LL.M. (Master of Laws) candidates from countries in the REES area; with the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs and its network of international affairs institutes in Russia and Central/Eastern Europe; and with the Katz Graduate School of Business in hosting MBA students and visiting faculty from Central/Eastern Europe. Each year REES hosts numerous scholars from the region who are supported by such national programs as IREX, NCEEER, American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS, Fulbright, and Muskie.
