The Center for European Studies is hosting Europe Week at Carolina, a week dedicated to appreciating and celebrating European culture, from April 6 to 12.
This is the fourth annual event, sponsored by the European Union delegation to the U.S. through a grant called "Getting to Know Europe."
The Center for European Studies is one of seven centers in the Global Education Center devoted to expanding interest, knowledge and understanding of Europe, said Katie Shanahan Lindner, executive director of the Center for European Studies.
“The UNC community is very active in global issues and pursuing a global mindset and we, our center, is one piece of that puzzle,” Lindner said. “So we contribute to the community and allow students to come to find out more about Europe."
Doing so can inspire students to talk more about issues they are interested in, possibly leading to participation in a transatlantic study abroad program, Lindner said.
