Mission of the IEUSS

The IEUSS is a network of SUNY faculty and IEUSS fellows with its mission to promote knowledge of the European Union throughout the State of New York.  The IEUSS is affiliated with the SUNY Office of Global Affairs.  The IEUSS sponsors research, teaching, and service through collaborations with institutions of higher education, K-12, nonprofits, and businesses. To achieve this collaborative element of it mission, the IEUSS co-sponsors K-12 teacher trainings, high school Model European Union simulations, global institutes, conferences, and lectures.  It co-sponsors the SUNY Model European Union (SUNYMEU) with a SUNY campus and publishes the SUNYMEU training manual.  As a SUNY academic institution, IEUSS is guided by SUNY's mission of providing the highest quality affordable programs with the broadest possible access to the people of New York State. 

The IEUSS is governed by a board of SUNY faculty and administrators (with representation of EU scholars from European universities).  The IEUSS Board Chair and its Director report the Institute's annual activities to the SUNY Office of Global Affairs and academic administration at partner SUNY campuses.

Website hosted by SUNY Buffalo State as an in-kind contribution to the IEUSS mission.

Fall 2021 Semester - Study Abroad

SUNY System Administration announced, after careful deliberation, that all university-sponsored undergraduate international travel (study-abroad and faculty-led student activities) for fall 2021 is canceled because of the ongoing pandemic. This continuation of the current suspension of international undergraduate study and travel is driven by SUNY's ongoing commitment to the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff. SUNY will again launch the COIL Global Commons for summer 2021. Faculty members interested in learning more about online intercultural exchange, collaborative projects, or serving on planning subcommittees for 2021 can view the details of last year's program.
