Pitt named one of 10 European Union centers

Pitt has been named one of 10 European Union (EU) centers in the United States through an initiative designed to promote study at American universities of the EU, its institutions and policies and European Union-U.S. relations.

According to Alberta Sbragia, director of Pitt's Center for West European Studies, "This ensures that the University of Pittsburgh will remain at the forefront of research and teaching on this historic integration of Europe."

Among the objectives of the EU centers will be to host visiting scholars and short-term visitors from the EU, including representatives and policy-makers of nongovernmental organizations, labor unions and businesses. The centers will form a national network and will conduct outreach programs to promote greater knowledge of the EU.

Other institutions named were the University System of Georgia/Georgia Institute of Technology; Harvard University; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; the University of Missouri-Columbia; the New York Consortium for European Studies; the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and Duke University; Scripps College, the Claremont Colleges and the University of Southern California; the University of Washington at Seattle, and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
