CDLC Mission
Committee Members: Amy Vetter, Keshia Martin, Micheline Chalhoub-Deville, Laura Gonzalez, Bev Faircloth , Silvia Bettez

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. Specifically, we propose to design and implement research agendas responsive to identified diverse language community needs that results in:

● Developing a coherent and comprehensive research agenda that engages community voices to address the educational and socio-cultural wellbeing of DLC individuals and groups;
● Establishing and strengthening partnerships among diverse language community stakeholders (e.g., individuals, families, students, schools, community organizations, universities, state policy makers);
● Building capacity to value and support international individuals, experiences, and perspectives and to promote global collaborations and opportunities.
● Advocating, promoting policy, and engaging in outreach activities to leverage positive change for DLCs through professional development, community engagement programs, and other avenues as needed for DLC stakeholders.
