The Ronald and Eileen Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia (WCEE) is dedicated to enhancing interdisciplinary knowledge about and public engagement with the institutions, cultures, and histories of Europe and Eurasia. WCEE is comprised of the Center for European Studies (CES); Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES); and Copernicus Program in Polish Studies (CPPS); and works in association with the Islamic Studies Program (ISP) and the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED) at the University of Michigan International Institute. Named in honor of Ronald and Eileen Weiser and inspired by their time in Slovakia during Ambassador Weiser’s service as U.S. ambassador from 2001-04, WCEE began operations in September 2008.
