MEDIA ADVISORY: BYU Center for the Study of Europe to be opened Sept. 25 at 11 a.m.

Funded by $1.2 million DOE grant

The Center for the Study of Europe at Brigham Young University will officially open during a ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 25, at 11 a.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building located just south of the Lee Library.

PLEASE NOTE: A previous release incorrectly listed the starting time as noon.

BYU President Cecil O. Samuelson, Jeff Ringer, director of the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies (which is hosting the new center), Wade Jacoby, the center's director, and other university officials will attend the formal opening.

The center will be funded by a U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant of more than $1.2 million.

The opening ceremony will focus on the grant's specific implications for faculty and students and provide information regarding their potential involvement in the center.

Scholarly research will expand as a result, with part of the funding increasing the European holdings in the Lee Library. A significant portion of the grant money--$168,000 a year--has also been set apart to provide foreign language and area studies fellowships for graduate students.

Press kits with details about the grant, program directors, faculty and student spotlights and more will be available at the official opening. For more information, contact Wade Jacoby, 742 Spencer W. Kimball Tower, (801) 422-1711, or wade.jacoby@byu.edu.
