About Us

The Ronald and Eileen Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia (WCEE) supports faculty and student research, teaching, collaboration, and public engagement in studying the institutions, cultures, and histories of these regions.

WCEE is housed in the University of Michigan International Institute  and is comprised of the Center for European Studies (CES); the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREES); and the Copernicus Program in Polish Studies (CPPS). WCEE works in association with the Islamic Studies Program (ISP); and the Weiser Center for Emerging Democracies (WCED).

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.
