Grateful to Peter V. Tsantes and family
The Center for Hellenic Studies is grateful to Mr. Peter V. Tsantes and his family for their generosity and their support. The establishment of the Tsantes Endowed Professorship (supporting Prof. Nikos Panou) strengthened the Center for Hellenic Studies, aiming to promote, study and disseminate Hellenic civilization, culture, history, socioeconomics, language, and literature.
Mr. Tsantes followed up with another generous gift to the Center for Hellenic Studies which supports the establishment of a dedicated space for the Center as well as ongoing operation and events of the Center, including the dispersion of knowledge on Hellenism and pursuit of scholarship, encouragement of student engagement and participation, and the engagement in community activities.
