The battle to keep Greek studies at La Trobe University is still up in the air with continued efforts to keep the program going.
Dozens of letters have been sent to the university’s management along with thousands of signatures gathered as part of the petition to keep the program going.
A meeting between Greek Community of Melbourne President Bill Papastergiadis and La Trobe University’s Vice Chancellor Professor John Dewar is set to take place this afternoon.
Also tonight, Archbishop Makarios will focus on the issue as part of a meeting at the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Melbourne.
Further meetings are set to take place early next week, to be attended by Kat Theophanous, Nick Staikos and Steve Dimopoulos, Labor MPs of Victoria’s Parliament.
The Labor Party has been particularly active in efforts to save the Greek program, with former Labor Leader Bill Shorten sending a letter to Professor Dewar.
In Greece, the Radical Left Coalition SYRIZA party has also added its voice to the fold, calling on the university’s administration to rethink its decision.
