The Center promotes, maintains, and enhances an intimate linkage between scholarship, higher education, and global research communities with university resources for archives, museums, and special collections. In so doing, the Center plays a critical role in advancing the study of ancient and modern Greece in a transnational, cross-disciplinary and diachronic perspective.

Many appreciate coming to Princeton to conduct their research in our Center, and we enjoy learning from these scholars as well.
Monique Joseph, Office Assistant
As manager I am always inspired when the faculty, students, and fellows provide their departure or end of program travel reports (summaries). It is most often life-changing for them, so our work is validated and gratifying too.
Carol Oberto, Center Manager
Thanks to the generosity of the Stanley J. Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies I had the chance to do research in Athens and Naxos from July 27 to August 7. During this time, I could visit several archaeological sites and museums, and get to know the geographical context of the archaeological remains… This offers the possibility of an interesting new line of investigation.
Marc Domingo Gygax, Professor of Classics (Associated Faculty)
My home away from home and a center that connects people studying any aspects of the Hellenic world.
