The APA seeks to raise $4 million that will enable it to continue to transform the field of Classics and to serve students, teachers, and scholars in the 21st century. The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has endorsed this Campaign for Classics with an extraordinary Challenge Grant of $650,000, requiring a four-to-one match to secure the entire amount.
The campaign will develop an endowment to support a new American Center for Classics Research and Teaching. The aim of the Center is to make high quality information about the Classical World available in accessible formats to the largest possible audience by using technology in new and exciting ways. We will accelerate the transformation of our field from the “gatekeeper” of knowledge to the “gateway” to insight, offering all the rich and rewarding world of Classics. Your support will enable the American Center to:
* Create sophisticated and accessible research tools for Classics teachers and scholars
* Develop the next generation of inspired, diverse teachers of Classics and Classical Languages
* Support wider public understanding and appreciation of Classical Civilization
... all the details. I wonder if making TAPA available online for all will be among the methods to make high quality info available to the largest possible audience.
