The Eliadis Foundation is a private ancillary fund established and managed by Dr Paul Eliadis.
The Foundation was established to support in perpetuity a Professorial Chair of Classics and Ancient History.
The Chair of Classics and Ancient History resides within the School of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics or its successor.
The Chair’s primary purpose is to provide a future vision that will give teaching and research programs in Classics and Ancient History at the University an outstanding profile within Australian higher education and implement this vision by offering academic, research, teaching and organisational leadership that will expand research output, increase external funding support, build postgraduate culture and broaden the undergraduate teaching base.
The Eliadis Foundation was also established to support Medicine and the Arts, areas that Dr Paul Eliadis has already supported personally.
The long term aim of the Foundation is to support these 3 main interests in order that they can be enjoyed and appreciated by people for many generations to come.
