An academic Center for Hellenic Studies has been established by UCSD’s Division of Arts and Humanities. The center has received $25,000 in contributions from the Hellenic Cultural Society and a $1 million anonymous donation. The center will contribute to UCSD’s Greek history graduate program, which is the largest of its kind in North America and will enable undergraduates to work with scholars and researchers of Greek history. Furthermore, the center will feature a digital archive of Hellenic history and artifacts which will be accessible to the public.
