When he retired he taught as a visiting professor at McGill and Vanderbilt. He and Jean eventually settled in Athens and CYA had the benefit to have Raphael act as Academic Director and teach a
philosophy class. He died in 1968, symbolically in mid-ocean, on one of their trips back to the US.
At a memorial service held on September 18, 1968 Professor Roderick Firth said about Raphael Demos, “Raphael’s effectiveness as a teacher had its roots in the source of all good teaching. He cared – he really cared – about reaching his students, not so much to win them to some particular point of view, for he was able to discuss Plato and William James with equal enthusiasm, but rather to open their eyes to the delights that he himself found in the study of philosophy. There is no substitute for this kind of motivation”.

The carefully designed program journeyed students through the Bronze Age, Classical Antiquity, and Late Antiquity in the Middle Ages. They witnessed the influence and effects of the Byzantine Empire, Frankish, Venetian and Ottoman Rule, and learned about the key figures in the Greek War of Independence and the birth of Modern Greece flowing into Contemporary Greece, its architecture, urban design, and its environmental and sustainability issues.

Hosted by Wake Forest University, the WISE Conference is an opportunity for faculty, university administrators, and study abroad professionals to develop the knowledge and skills needed to help
students advance their intercultural skills and awareness during their abroad experiences.
Over the course of two days, Katie participated in a broad range of sessions and presentations and brought back tools that will help CYA better prepare students to engage mindfully with the Greek context and, consistently with CYA's mission, return home committed to furthering intercultural understanding in their communities.
