The Center of Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (CREEES) at Stanford University oversees a wide array of departmental and interdisciplinary activities on campus and outreach extending to the public. CREEES runs an intensive one-year Master of Arts (M.A.) program in interdisciplinary area studies. Stanford's core departments are particularly strong in comparative politics and security issues, Russian and East European history, Russian Jewish history, Russian language, literature, and culture. CREEES is developing new curriculum and language training on Central Asia and Islam in the Former Soviet Union. CREEES provides grants for faculty and graduate student research and language study; expands the curriculum through visiting professors and scholars; and supports the teaching of languages including Albanian, Czech, Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Serbo-Croatian, Yiddish, Ukrainian, Uzbek and Kazakh. CREEES offers teacher-training workshops for K-14 teachers and supports development of curriculum units on themes relevant to state and national social studies standards and responding to national concerns. These curricula are distributed nationally and reach thousands of students yearly. CREEES outreach also includes conferences, public lectures, a Video Lending Library, and collaborative activities with area colleges and public organizations in Silicon Valley. CREEES derives its strength from Stanford's commitment to excellence in research, publishing, and teaching. Stanford maintains one of the premier REEES library and archival collections in America, with combined resources of Stanford University Libraries and Hoover Archives in our field comprising over 1 million units. CREEES works to provide broad training to continuing generations of specialists in Russian, East European, and Eurasian studies.
