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.
