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 undergraduatesā€™ experience of the liberal arts at the schools of the Great Lakes Colleges Association.

Language Faculty Convenings ā€“ 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]).
