latrobeAs has been widely reported in recent weeks, a coalition of community groups and leaders has been put together by the GCM to lobby La Trobe University for the future of its Greek Studies program.

The University has met with members of the Greek Community and the coalition amongst others in recent days to explore the issue.

Over 6500 signatures were gathered by LTU students and a letter writing campaign from many community organisations, members of the community and parliamentarians reached the University.

The University for its part has recently said:

“La Trobe is reviewing feedback from a consultation with staff about the Modern Greek language program, in the context of a wider proposal for changes to courses and subjects in its School of Humanities and Social Sciences. It is also very keenly listening to the views of the wider community. A large number of submissions from members of the community were received during the consultation with staff.”
