Sunoikisis is a national consortium of Classics programs. “Sunoikisis” comes from Thucydides (3.3.1) in reference to the alliance formed by the cities of Lesbos (Methymna excluded) in their revolt against the Athenian empire in 428 B.C.E.  Likewise, this collaborative program seeks to develop a set of common goals and achieve a degree of success and prominence that goes beyond the capacity of a single program.

 

Curricular elements within this program include:

Sunoikisis enables students and faculty at participating institutions to benefit from opportunities normally available only at large research institutions, while maintaining the advantages of a small liberal arts learning environment.

Sunoikisis was cited as a model by academic leadership consultants Susan Frost and Aimee Pozorski in Chaos and the New Academy.
