European Union Center (EUC)
Established in fall 1998 through a grant from the European Commission, the European Union Center (EUC) at Illinois is part of the Network of EU Centers created to examine the process and special policy problems of European integration and their implication for the United States. In spring 2003, we were designated as a Title VI National Resource Center on US-EU relations by the US Department of Education.
