Major Grants and Projects

The European Union Center has been a U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center (NRC) since 2003 and a Jean Monnet Center of Excellence through the European Union's Erasmus+ program since 2015.

As a Title VI NRC, the European Union Center supports foreign language and area studies at the University of Illinois — most notably through the Master of Arts in European Union Studies program — and provides outreach programs, professional development, and curricular assistance to K-12 teachers, community college and minority-serving institution (MSI) faculty, and the general public. As a Jean Monnet Center of Excellence, the European Union Center promotes greater study and understanding of the EU and transatlantic relations in the U.S.
