The Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University ranks among the top ten of the some 90 institutes, centers, and programs focusing on medieval studies in North America. The institute’s reputation primarily rests on its annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, the largest annual professional meeting in the field; Medieval Institute Publications, which has published more than 200 books and journals since 1964; and its academic programs, which include a master's program and an undergraduate minor. The institute's research programs have made significant contributions to the reputation as well.
