Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies
Welcome to The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies at SFU!
The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Centre for Hellenic Studies was established in 2011 at Simon Fraser University through a significant multimillion-dollar grant by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Situated atop Burnaby Mountain, just east of downtown Vancouver, the SNF Centre for Hellenic Studies is the premier site for Hellenic Studies in North America and is committed to the advocacy and study of Hellenism.
The Centre offers courses in Ancient, Byzantine, Early Modern, and Modern Greek History, in addition to Greek language training.

The Centre also has partnerships across the United States and is leading the way in the expansion of Hellenic Studies to China.
