Center for European Union, Transatlantic,
and Trans-European Space Studies
A Jean Monnet Center of Excellence
As a Jean Monnet Center of Excellence, CEUTTSS promotes excellence in research as well as in teaching and learning in the inter/multi/trans-disciplinary field of European Studies, the more focused study of the European Union, and Transatlantic Studies. We aim to bring together intra-university experts to create links among the various disciplines and resources in European and Transatlantic Studies at Virginia Tech, while cultivating connections with academic institutions both in Europe and the United States.
CEUTTSS also pursues outreach and engagement activities aiming to foster a dialogue between the academic world and policymakers, in particular with the goal of enhancing the EU’s relations with the United States. In addition, CEUTTSS seeks to play a key role in reaching out to students and educators associated with secondary education, students of continuing and professional education, lifelong learning, the institutions of civil society, and the general public at large.
We bring together distinguished faculty from across the University to explore issues of contemporary, transatlantic relevance such as critical infrastructure, defense and security, equality and diversity in contemporary societies, technology, health, and the environment, and women in leadership.
