From the SCS Leadership

Board Letter to the Paideia Institute

On October 13, 2019, the SCS Board of Directors approved the following letter addressed to the Board of Directors of the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study, Inc.

"The Society for Classical Studies joins the American Classical League in expressing deep concern in response to recent public statements regarding the Paideia Institute. Some of those statements are authored by individuals who have been closely associated with Paideia in various capacities and who have now resigned from the Institute.  Some of the published allegations are more generally about the Institute’s cultural climate, while others concern specific incidents. All the allegations are serious.

Accordingly, the SCS board of directors has approved a temporary hiatus on new funding for Paideia programs, including but not limited to support via the SCS Minority Scholarships, Coffin Fellowships, and Classics Everywhere micro-grants.

Classics Advisory Service

The Classics Advisory Service helps college and university teachers maintain and strengthen their programs in Classics (broadly understood to include Greek and Latin languages and literatures, history, archaeology, and all other aspects of classical civilization). Among the services we provide are assistance with external Program Reviews, and advice and support for strengthening current programs and preserving threatened programs. The SCS now also provides guidelines for establishing and improving undergraduate programs.
