    About the EU Center

    The European Union Center at OU was founded in September 2001, when the University of Oklahoma became one of 15 national universities to host a center for European Union studies funded by the Commission of the European Communities. The Commission has provided substantial support for the Center's activities in the ensuing years.

    The role of the Center is to advance knowledge of the European Union across the campus of the University of Oklahoma, as well as throughout the local community and the state of Oklahoma. The EU Center has pursued this objective through a a speaker series, “Issues in a Dynamic Europe,” a Model European Union, research grants for graduate students, and summer seminars for university faculty and for Oklahoma high school teachers.

    Objectives of the EU Center at the University of Oklahoma

    • Promote knowledge and awareness of the European Union and US-EU relations on the OU campus and throughout the state of Oklahoma
    • Educate state business and policy leaders on the importance of the EU to the US economy and to global affairs
    • Help regional educators at the high school level develop teaching materials on the EU
