Michael Kennedy  - The European Union is a critical subject in our academic mission, ... With a variety of particular projects supported, among others those studying energy security, law, multiculturalism and religion in this newly expanded Europe, our capacity to understand and teach about the most critical issues facing the world is significantly extended by this award. Not insignificantly, Michigan's profile in the European vision of American higher education is distinguished further, with a range of important visitors slated to come during our three-year award.

Milan Kundera  - High culture is nothing but a child of that European perversion called history, the obsession we have with going forward, with considering the sequence of generations a relay race in which everyone surpasses his predecessor, only to be surpassed by his successor. Without this relay race called history there would be no European art and what characterizes it: a longing for originality, a longing for change. Robespierre, Napoleon, Beethoven, Stalin, Picasso, they're all runners in the relay race, they all belong to the same stadium.
