The Promise Armenian Institute is a groundbreaking new entity within the UCLA International Institute. Made possible with a $20 million gift from the estate of Kirk Kerkorian, the largest gift that the International Institute has received, The Promise Armenian Institute positions UCLA to significantly build upon its more than 50 years of history of Armenian Studies, which currently includes two endowed faculty chairs. This new institute will be the hub for world-class research and teaching on Armenian Studies, and for coordinating new and ongoing research and public impact programs across UCLA — from social sciences to health sciences; from humanities to music, the arts and engineering; and from public policy to management. The Promise Armenian Institute’s size, scope and interdisciplinary approach make it the first of its kind in the world.
The Promise Armenian Institute will include the new Armenian Studies Center, and Professor Karagozian will be involved in the selection of its first director.
The UCLA International Institute warmly welcomes Professor Ann R. Karagozian to her leadership role at The Promise Armenian Institute.
