The Christina Elliot Sorum Guest Professorship in Classics has been established with an anonymous gift, Therese McCarty, interim dean of faculty, has announced. 

“This endowed gift is a loving tribute to Christie and honors her many years of teaching, scholarship and leadership at Union College, as well as her expertise in classics,” McCarty said.

Each year's Sorum Guest Professor will be selected from among those who have gained distinction in classics, and will generally spend three to five days on campus working with students and faculty. The campus visit will include a public lecture for the wider college community, classroom visits or workshops for undergraduates and a seminar paper for faculty.
