Employee Language Program

The WWU Employee Language Program is an initiative put forth by the President's Office to support Western faculty and staff through professional development and to encourage multicultural outreach and awareness. The workshops are the result of a combined effort of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, and Extended Education.

Western is proud to again offer Employee Language Program workshops for Academic Year 2014-15.  We would like to thank President Shepard and the President's Office for their continued support of this program.

These professional development opportunities will be facilitated by upper division students in the Department of Modern and Classical Languages at Western.
