History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

The Harriman Institute was founded at Columbia University in 1942 as the Russian Institute. The mission of the Institute was to promote research and scholarsip on Russia. The name of the Institute was changed to the W. Averell Harriman Institute for the Advanced Study of the Soviet Union in 1982. In 1992, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the name was shortened to the Harriman Institute and the scope of the institute increased to include the states of eastern Europe including those of the former Soviet Union. The Institute's scope increased further in 1997 when the Harriman Institute joined with the East Central Europe Institute. The Harriman Institute currently serves as the center for Russian, Eurasian, and Eastern European Studies at Columbia University.
