The Rutgers Modern Greek Studies Program (MGSP) has been steadily #1 in the nation for number of courses offered and number of students who take these courses.
Thanks to recent donations and the leadership by its current Director, Prof. Stephen Reinert, as well as of her predecessors, Prof. Sarolta A. Takács and Prof. Tia Kolbaba, the MGSP now serves over 100 undergraduates, with roughly 30 of them currently minoring in Modern Greek. Thanks to a generous $800K donation by the late community’s generous donations Nikos Mouyiaris and the community’s steady support over three decades, the Elytis Chair Fund has approached $2 million, while at the same time has been continuously supporting the activities and the expansion go the MGSP. Your donation enabled us to add 5 courses to the existing 18 courses and renew 3 other courses. We were also able to offer scholarships for students who studied in Thessaloniki during the summer, thanks to the generosity of the Golfinopoulos, Karantza, Spireas and Vahaviolos families. We are currently working to start a joint program with the University of Cyprus.
In addition to courses, the MGSP offers a wide variety of cultural events that benefit Rutgers and the community in general.
We list below just some of the events that we brought to you (actually, your donations brought to us):
