Employee language workshops include French, Chinese, Spanish

Western Today staff

Employee Language Program workshops are again being offered at Western Washington University, thanks to the continuing support of President Bruce Shepard and the President's Office.

The WWU Employee Language Program workshops are 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 by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, and Extended Education.

This quarter, the program will continue to offer a variety of Spanish Language and Culture workshops, a workshop in Chinese Language and Culture and a workshop in French Language and Culture (now open for registration). For workshop level descriptions and recommended preparation, please visit the descriptions on the program curriculum page.

Spanish and Chinese workshops will begin the second week of fall quarter, starting on Sept. 29. French workshops will begin the third week of fall quarter, starting on Oct. 6 (specific dates and times to be announced). A listing of offerings and times is available on the program home page.

Priority will be given to those interested participants who indicate a high need.  Be sure to communicate with your supervisor prior to registering for a workshop; if you have additional questions, a FAQ page is available on the program website.
