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. This page houses the information, publications, and event details for ongoing partnerships, such as our programming partnership with WorldDenver, as well as some of the products of our past long-term partnerships, such as the research award from the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
