Looking to the Future
Today, the Modern Greek Program at Ohio State stands as one of the strongest and most respected in the nation.
To ensure Ohio State can continue to teach, research and promote modern Greek language and culture, we seek to establish permanent funding.
Ohio State aims to establish an endowed professorship to anchor the Modern Greek Program, ensuring current and future generations will have the opportunity to study and be inspired by modern Greek language and culture.
Modern Greek Studies Professorship
Many peer institutions have already established chairs and professorships to ensure the permanency of their modern Greek programs — Columbia, Michigan and UC San Diego to name a few. We must do the same at Ohio State.
A professor dedicated to the teaching and research of modern Greek studies will make sure that Greek language and culture will be taught, in perpetuity, at one of the best universities in the nation.
The university is committed to making permanent the Modern Greek Program, but we can’t do it alone. We seek to raise $1 million to establish the Modern Greek Studies Professorship. As of September 30, 2017, we are $630,000 toward that goal.
Forty years ago, the Hellenic community spearheaded efforts to create the program. We ask that you once again stand with us, to help raise the funds necessary to ensure the Modern Greek Program remains a fixture at Ohio State.
