European Union Day at the University of Illinois is a celebration of transatlantic relations and strives to promote a better understanding between the peoples of the United States and the European Union. The highlight of the celebration is the address by the Ambassador of the country that holds the presidency of the Council of the European Union.

 

This year, the annual “State of the European Union” address will be delivered by His Excellency Henne Schuwer, Ambassador of the Netherlands to the United States.

 

EU Day is open to the public and provides our citizens with the opportunity to learn about the importance of the European Union to the United States and its role in promoting international relations.
