The Russian and East European Institute (REEI) was established in 1958 on Indiana University's Bloomington campus. REEI administers one of the country's leading programs in Russian and East European area studies. REEI has been designated one of sixteen U.S. Department of Education-funded Title VI National Resource/FLAS Centers for Russia and Eastern Europe for the 2010-2013 grant period.

More than one hundred faculty from eighteen departments and schools are affiliated with the Institute. About 250 IU students are pursuing interdisciplinary study of the REEI region in bachelor, master of arts, professional school, or doctoral degree programs. We invite prospective students to read the letter of greeting from REEI's Director, Padraic Kenney.

Prospective students may also email the Institute to request materials by mail. Please include the following in your letter: name, full address, type of degree you are interested in and how you heard about the program.
