The Jean Monnet in the U.S.A. Series, #JMintheUS is an initiative of several EU-funded Universities across the United States. The world has shifted to virtual events, making new kinds of collaborations possible. Co-sponsors of the #JMintheUS initiative can better share programming related to the European Union and European Union studies, increasing access to more communities throughout the country. 

The following events which took place in academic year 2020-21 were open to all audiences. Many of them were recorded and links to the recordings are included whenever available. These recordings are available as resources for educators and students, alike.  Please note that any use of ideas or comments in your own work should be properly acknowledged through citation.  

The European Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh is proud to host this page for information purposes, but is not responsible for the events being organized by partner institutions.
