Princeton establishes a center for scholars in Athens

November 4, 2016

Princeton University’s tradition of deep commitment to the humanities has long been connected to Greece and Hellenic culture, from antiquity to the present. On Tuesday, Nov. 1, the University added a formal home base for Princeton scholars in Greece with the opening of the Princeton University Athens Center for Research and Hellenic Studies. Three years in the planning, the center is led by the University’s Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies.

President Christopher L. Eisgruber spoke at the opening reception, which was attended by 55 guests including faculty, students, friends, and more than 30 undergraduate and graduate alumni spanning more than 50 years.
