In January 2019, the University of Wollongong created a new School of Liberal Arts (SOLA). In partnership with the Ramsay Centre, SOLA will become home to a BA degree in Western Civilization. February 2019 saw the first academic appointments to SOLA. Daniel Hutto joined as Head of School and Shaun Gallagher, Lillian and Morrie Moss Chair of Excellence in Philosophy at the University of Memphis, joined as a Professorial Fellow. SOLA will make 9 further philosophically-oriented academic appointments in the coming months and years, supported by a donation of upwards of $50 million from the Ramsay Centre.
