CAS - CRIA
Welcome to the Center for Research on International Affairs
The Center for Research on International Affairs (CRIA), housed in Loyola University Chicago's College of Arts and Sciences, is an interdisciplinary center promoting internationally oriented research and externally funded grant projects, internationally oriented academic programs at our Chicago-based campuses, lectures and presentations on international topics, and international research connections.
CRIA was established in fall 2022 to support an essential aspect of the College of Arts and Science’s six-point vision for the future: “Building international bridges to expand the numbers of our students who study abroad, international students who study in the College, and faculty and staff who engage in international collaborations.”
We invite you to explore our website and to visit it often as we are currently adding information that we hope you will find useful.
For inquiries, please contact Dr. Alexandru V. Grigorescu, Director of the Center for Research on International Affairs.
