Western Community,

Registration is open for the Western Washington University Employee Language Program workshops, with sessions starting in the third week of the quarter and running through the week of December 2nd. Open to all Western employees, these workshops support faculty and staff through professional development and encourage multicultural outreach and awareness. Language learners of all levels are welcome.

For workshop-level descriptions and recommended preparation, please review descriptions on the program curriculum page.



There are no registration fees for these workshops.

Sessions will be a combination of hybrid (face-to-face/online) or online only. Details are listed on the registration page.

Courses are facilitated by WWU students and drive the availability of programs offered. We are working to bring back the Occupational English programs, expand the French program and introduce new courses you have asked for.

If your department is interested in a multilingual outreach program, please E-mail with your request. We may be able to create a custom program to fit the language needs of your office.

The WWU Employee Language Program is an initiative put forth by the Office of the President 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 Outreach and Continuing Education.
