work and play with people from around the world
know people who speak multiple languages
teach people whose primary language is different from your own
then you are a part of a Diverse Language Community.
The Coalition for Diverse Language Communities (CDLC) was founded more than two years ago by Professors Micheline Chalhoub-Deville, Colleen Fairbanks, and Barbara Levin. Its goal is to promote innovative, relevant, and collaborative work in the areas of community-engaged research, outreach and advocacy, policy work, and professional development. The CDLC aims to be a catalyst for innovative, relevant, collaborative and policy-related research, leveraging the synergy and knowledge of faculty, staff, students, and communities locally, nationally, and globally.
