Shared Languages Program

The Shared Languages Program encourages collaboration and cooperation among GLCA language faculty. The program is part of the Mellon-funded Global Crossroads Initiative to advance internationalization of the programs of learning that define undergraduates’ experience of the liberal arts at the schools of the Great Lakes Colleges Association.

Language Faculty Convenings – GLCA language faculty meet, by language, to discuss language programs at small liberal arts colleges and to build communities across GLCA institutions through collaborative efforts such as syllabi sharing, co-development of course modules, guest lectures, sharing assignments and pedagogy tips. An initial meeting of language faculty was held in August 2019 at Oberlin College, resulting in a collection of insights and recommendations. GLCA language faculty interested in bringing together colleagues should contact Simon Gray ([email protected]).
