The Center for Hellenic Studies in Greece (CHS Greece) is a Harvard global office. It operates as an interdisciplinary hub of the University abroad that links the Harvard community to local academic institutions, authorities and other organizations and communities, uniting the humanistic pursuits of its twin institution, CHS in Washington, DC (CHS US), with the homeland of Hellenism.

From its inception, CHS Greece was conceived and established to be accessible and free of charge to the general public. It maintains two equally significant operational priorities. One is to organize, collaborate on, and support activities addressed to the Harvard community. The other is to engage with educational and non-educational communities in Greece and around the world through a multitude of programs and other initiatives.
