Modern Greek has been taught at La Trobe University for 38 years. La Trobe is the only Victorian university that offers a Modern Greek Studies program. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, La Trobe University has decided to discontinue this unique program.

It would be a shame if La Trobe decided to disregard the wealth of knowledge that the Greek program has to offer. We, the students, are genuinely concerned that in the globalised world that we live in, La Trobe University is taking steps to diminish the role that language has to play in its students’ past, present and future.

In the diaspora our language is under threat, and we, the students of the Modern Greek Program, urge you to sign this petition in solidarity to save the Greek language at La Trobe University.
