The New York Chapter of the AFGLC (AFGLCNY) is dedicated to the preservation and enhancement of Greek language and culture in institutions of higher learning. Our mission is to emphasize and preserve the Hellenic civilization, language and culture to all Greeks, Greek-Americans and Philhellenes in the Americas, and to promote programs relevant to Hellenic Language, Culture, History and Tradition. The first immediate goal of the NY chapter of AFGLC is to help establish a Center of Hellenic Studies with an associated Endowed Chair in perpetuity at Stony Brook University that will encourage the study of Hellenic culture at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
