The Center is extremely grateful to Mercer Alumnus and former Trustee A.V. Elliott for his gift of $1 million. This gift will endow our annual conference, now renamed the A.V. Elliott Conference on Great Books and Ideas. Please see the press release.
The Center’s programming includes an annual lecture series and academic conference, high school teacher and student workshops, faculty-student reading groups, and undergraduate research fellowships.
In the Summer of 2013, the Center will conduct two great programs for high school teachers. Our two-week campus program will take place in June (two sessions are available: June 2-14 and June 9-21). A brand new travel program in Florence, Italy is being offered in late June (15-28).
