 The Steger Center for International Scholarship, a Virginia Tech campus in Riva San Vitale, Switzerland, offers opportunities for student learning and conferences in an idyllic European setting. It serves as the primary location for two study abroad programs administered by the Department of Political Science and the International Studies Program: European Affairs in a Global Context, and European Perspectives on Integrated Security. These study abroad programs complement work being undertaken at the Center for European Union, Transatlantic & Trans-European Space Studies (CEUTTSS). Both programs emphasize European politics and political economy, regional security dilemmas, and transatlantic security concerns. Future endeavors being planned include the enlargement of study abroad programming opportunities in interdisciplinary education and research, professional and academic events and conferences, and strengthened ties with American and European educational institutions throughout Europe. The Steger Center thus provides CEUTTSS with an ideal European base of operations for research, outreach and learning.
