Northern Illinois University recently joined the Council for European Studies.
“Northern Illinois University has been approved for membership to the Council for European Studies (CES) Academic Consortium, an international coalition of universities, centers and other organizations dedicated to furthering the study of Europe,” according to NIU Today.
“U.S. institutions that are counted among the CES members consist primarily of elite private or state flagships universities. In Illinois, only two other public institutions – the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Illinois at Chicago – are among the council’s current 84 members.”
NIU’s membership in the CES should present NIU faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students with new possibilities for collaborative research and study abroad.
Mary Quinlan, professor of Art History at NIU, led the initiative to join the CES.
