FIU-MEUCE Hosts Recognition & Award Ceremony on May 9th, Europe Day

Every year, the Miami-Florida European Union Center of Excellence’s European Studies Program holds a Recognition and Award Ceremony for graduating seniors who in addition to have earning their bachelors have also worked towards the European Studies Certificate.
