External Affiliates

CREECA external affiliates:

  • Are faculty and staff members beyond UW-Madison who have a primary research and/or teaching interest in Russia, Eastern and Central Europe, and/or Central Eurasia. They work at campuses at the University of Wisconsin System and at other two-year and four-year colleges and universities in Wisconsin and neighboring states.

CREECA external affiliates participate in the life of the center in various ways: presenting at the CREECA lecture series, participating in outreach events in Madison and around Wisconsin and neighboring states, and being part of a network of like-minded scholars at UW-Madison. To join the center as a CREECA external affiliate, faculty and staff at institutions of higher education in Wisconsin and neighboring states should submit a letter stating the nature of her/his interest and a current curriculum vitae to the CREECA associate director, Jennifer Tishler. Requests will be considered by the CREECA Administrative Council.
