Partnerships & Programs

The Center for Middle East Studies is proud to enter into partnerships with incredible organizations locally, nationally and globally. We believe in the importance of partnerships and co-programming, with the aim of building coalitions and relationships across the globe. Our partnerships range from co-sponsoring single events, to full conferences, to academic programs and faculty exchanges abroad, and so much more.
