“Understanding the stories behind human progress, emotions and values is key to effective listening, empathy and leadership. So much of what we see today, can be better understood through the lens of the past. Through history, stories and myths, the currency of Classics, we can see in advance ‘how it turned out the last time we went this way,’ and hopefully make better decisions. This is why we feel that the study of Classics is still just as relevant as it was generations ago and feel compelled to support the teaching and learning of Classics in the 21st century.”
