The Armenian Research Center at The University of Michigan-Dearborn is the first Armenian Research Center attached to an American university, and thus it has traditionally exhibited a leadership role in the field.

The center serves the local community, along with the national Armenian community. This fortunate confluence of university resources and public interest presented a unique opportunity for the expansion of internal collaboration and external partnerships in research, teaching, and service. It provides this community with a valuable learning resource, provides educational materials, and helps to serve its cultural needs. It is this community which has provided the Center, and thereby the campus, with a valuable resource as a gift.

The Armenian Research Center certainly adds a multicultural and international perspective to the educational process for students, which will help Americans in general to better understand the world and define their proper role in it.

Our mailing address is 4901 Evergreen Rd, Dearborn, MI 48128.
