I second Prof. Panourgia's call.  The ultimate goal is attainable: Every Greek 
Studies Program in the United States (chairs, distinguished professorships, even 
mid-career faculty positions) ought to be endowed by private donors including 
Greek American businesses, benevolent organizations, and individual 

It is high time for our Omogenia to rise to the occasion and look beyond 
patriotic rhetoric and perennial Διονύσια. 

A friendly reminder to all concerned:

As regrettable as this turn of events is it might actually prove to     be a 
blessing in disguise. As we say in Greece: Ιδού πεδίον δόξης     λαμπρόν. This 
is the perfect time for the Greek-American community     to show its commitment 
to all things Greek, to get itself together,     engage in fundraising, and fund 
and endow a modern Greek program at     Cornell. Modern Greek programs cannot be 
sustained solely by Greek     funds in perpetuity and the US universities have 
shown over the past     two years that they are following a corporate model 
which does not     encourage the flourishing of the humanities. Therefore this 
is the     time for alumni, Greek-American businesses, and the community at     
large to invest in and promote education.
