Collaborative Goals

The main goal of the CLAC Working Group is to provide a space for faculty and administrators to discuss and advance knowledge related to the Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) framework. CLAC provides opportunities to develop and apply language and intercultural competence within all academic disciplines through the use of multilingual resources and the inclusion of multiple cultural perspectives The working group will help identify ways to incorporate diverse languages and cultures across academic disciplines, thereby enhancing the translingual and transcultural competence of their students. The group will also promote the visibility of CLAC programs and will advocate for the adoption of the CLAC framework across higher education.
