Center receives a sixth German Embassy Campus Week Award
The Center for European Studies has received a grant from the German Embassy's German Information Center to sponsor a series of fall term events on the theme of "Germany Meets the US." The award supports programs that promote greater understanding of Germany and its relationship with the US among college students. This year, our series of programs will focus on women’s political leadership and political participation in Germany and the US, highlighting German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s leadership on the world stage and Hillary Clinton’s historic presidential candidacy in the US.
