Both centers and institutes provide an organizational base for research and an opportunity for interdisciplinary activity and involvement in continuing education activities, facilitate efforts to obtain extramural funding, and serve as a link between the academic and professional communities in a given academic area. A center is not an autonomous structure within the organizational structure of the college or university, but an institute may be an autonomous unit. An institute, unlike a center, may offer credit courses and degree programs.
