Both individuals and organisations are invited to pledge their support and become a Guardian of Greek Language and Culture at CDU, by pledging to give annually or in the form of a single one-off gift.
Established in 2012, the CDU Foundation Guardians of Greek Language and Culture (more commonly known as The Greek Guardians) have worked together with the Northern Territory’s Greek community to secure the University’s Greek Language and Culture Program.
With the goal to produce an internationally recognised study program incorporating an innovative research agenda focussed on Greek communities across the New World, with the help of the Greek Guardians, CDU now delivers one of Australia's most respected in-country Greek language and culture programs and is accredited by the Greek Government as the NT Examination Centre for the Certificate of attainment in Greek Language.
Ongoing Greek language and culture lectures are delivered both online and face-to-face at CDU's Casuarina Campus, and CDU plays host to regular Greek poetry symposia, visiting academics and public lectures.
Ongoing support from the Guardians of Greek Language and Culture will see CDU continue to deliver an outstanding Hellenic and Greek Language and Culture curriculum in undergraduate and post graduate studies, whilst supporting new initiatives such as scholarships and bursaries for disadvantaged students, visiting academic programs, research fellowships, and cultural exchanges.
