CREES engages faculty across the University of Michigan in the humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and professional schools. We seek to create a community of scholars who share a common interest in research and teaching on Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia. CREES Faculty Associates teach and advise students in center academic programs, are eligible to apply for grants to support research and travel, elect the center’s Executive Committee, and are occasionally called upon to serve on committees.

We also offer the opportunity for REES area specialists with doctorates who hold non-teaching positions at U-M or teach at regional colleges and universities to become CREES Research Associates.
