About Us

Founded in 1981, the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) is a private not-for-profit federation of 24 independent overseas research centers located in 28 countries. CAORC's mission is to advance higher learning and international scholarly research, particularly in the humanities and social sciences, by promoting communication and cooperation among scholars, academic institutions, and overseas research centers, with a focus on the understanding and interpretation of modern societies and the conservation and recording of cultural heritage. CAORC fosters research projects across national boundaries, encourages collaborative research and programmatic and administrative coherence among member centers, and works to expand their resource base and service capacity.

CAORC member centers maintain a permanent presence in the host countries in which they operate - Europe, Latin America, the Near and Middle East, Asia, and West Africa. The centers are the primary vehicle through which American scholars carry out research vital to our understanding of and intersection with other cultures.
