The European Union Center of Excellence promotes the study of the EU, its institutions and policies and EU-US relations through teaching programs, scholarly research and outreach activities. The European Union funds this initiative as part of a broader effort to promote the people-to-people ties outlined in the New Transatlantic Agenda, which provides a framework for EU-US relations. The EU Centers program has helped create a foothold for EU studies in US higher education and served as an information resource for a broad US audience, with extensive outreach to regional audiences and the policy community.
