Sufian-Passamano Prize in Classical Civilization

Our department had long desired to give greater recognition also to the outstanding work on the ancient world that students of our department were doing outside the languages. Happily, in 2013/14 we were able to realize that long-cherished wish when James Passamano (C ’85), along with his wife, Beth Sufian (C ’86), generously agreed to support the design and ongoing production of a new medal, the Sufian-Passamano Prize in Classical Civilization.
