University of Illinois European Union Center

The University of Illinois European Union Center (EUC) was established in 1998 with support from the European Commission, as one of the ten original EU Centers in the United States. In 2003, the US Department of Education designated the EUC as a Title VI National Resource Center. In 2011, the European Union recognized the EUC as a European Union Center of Excellence.

The mission of the center is:

To promote scholarly research on the EU and transatlantic relations by serving as a national resource center;
To strengthen the undergraduate, graduate, and professional curricula on the EU across all colleges at the University of Illinois;
To educate and train a new generation of experts on EU policies and EU-US relations; and
To deepen the understanding between the peoples of the US and the EU through an extensive outreach program to K-12 educators and students, businesses, government leaders, the media, and the general public.

The European Union Center is a unit within the International Programs and Studies at Illinois.
