Request for Paris Center Interest

As we develop the Center's inaugural programming, we welcome any ideas for using this space to further innovative research collaborations, immersive teaching opportunities, and other partnerships in Europe.

Submit your expressions of interest to, and include:

  • A short description of the project or projects you have in mind

Paris Center staff will be in contact to schedule an initial conversation to answer questions and discuss the feasibility of potential projects.
