our program

The CHABRAJA CENTER FOR HISTORICAL STUDIES hosts an annual lunch lecture series and sponsors or co-sponsors a multitude of other campus events that engage with historical materials: conferences, lectures, panel discussions, seminars, workshops, and global graduate exchanges. The Center is benefiting from part of a generous 2015 gift of $5.6 million for the University from Eleanor and Nicholas Chabraja, which has enlarged the original Chabraja endowment and allows us to expand out programs.
