The Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs is launching a partnership with the Institute for International Education. This is part of a broader effort to boost the extroversion of the Greek education system and Greek universities specifically.
 
The partnership aims at bringing a delegation from selected US institutions to visit Greece for a week at the end of March to meet Greek rectors and visit Greek universities. The purpose of the partnership is to establish contact between US institutions and their Greek counterparts.

The Paideia Institute has recently lauched "The Quintilian Society," a member/fellowship program to "revitalize the teaching and learning of Latin and ancient Greek in American high schools by supporting PhDs who choose to pursue a career in public secondary education."

"The Quintilian Society exists to foster a community of teacher-scholars with advanced training in the classical languages and the humanities, to celebrate the service of classicists who have felt called to pursue a vocation as public servant, and to provide guidance and mentorship to current graduate students who are considering a career as public high school Classics teachers."

To highlight the public impact of the humanities in higher education, the National Humanities Alliance recently launched Humanities for All: a website that documents the past 10 years of publicly engaged humanities research, teaching, and programming in universities and colleges across the U.S. The website presents a cross section of over 1,400 projects, searchable, sortable, and illustrated with 51 in-depth profiles. When viewed together, these initiatives illustrate the broad impact of the humanities beyond higher education.

"The workshop represents a pilot to test the ability to develop a national network of co-facilitators who work pro bono to run groups nationwide."
