University of Chicago Summer 2024 Mellon Workshops

In June 2016 the University of Chicago Language Center (CLC) received a $2 million grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for the project “Transforming Language Instruction at the University of Chicago and Beyond: Collaborative Curricula and Professional Development.” The grant, initially awarded for five years but now extended until June 2024, began as a way to increase learner access to less commonly taught languages (LCTLs) and support those language instructors through professional development.
