Welcome to the European Studies Center

The ESC coordinates and develops scholarship, teaching, and community events related to Europe and the European Union. We work in cooperation with academic departments, schools, and research units throughout the University. The ESC supports the development of new courses, sponsors lectures, symposia, and conferences with international participants, offers faculty and graduate student grants, and provides an intellectual community for students and faculty studying all aspects of contemporary and historical Europe and the European Union.  We have been designated a National Resource Center for European Studies by the U.S. Department of Education (under Title VI of the Higher Education Act) and a Jean Monnet Center of Excellence by the European Commission.

If you’re interested in Europe and/or the European Union, please check out all we have to offer on our website and if you’re on campus, please visit us in the University Center for International Studies (UCIS) in Wesley W. Posvar Hall.
