Since it was founded in the 1980s, the Center for Modern Greek Studies at San Francisco State University, later renamed the Center for Greek Studies, has provided rich and unique opportunities for students to learn about modern Greek language and literature, contemporary culture and history.
But over the years, San Francisco State has seen a decline in students enrolling and participating in classes and programs through the center. After careful consideration, the Center for Greek Studies closed May 30.
This decision was made in consultation with the Modern Greek Studies Foundation (MGSF), a nonprofit that has supported the center for decades. Through their continued generosity, MGSF has made a transformational impact on the center, students and the University, and looks forward to supporting academic and cultural offerings that highlight the beauty of Hellenic literature and culture wherever offered.
