The Center for Language Teaching Advancement (CeLTA), housed within the
College of Arts and Letters, was
formed in August 2008 to assist with the administration and coordination of
language offerings, best teaching practices, the sharing of curricula across
languages and departments, and to promote service learning and outreach.
The College of Arts and Letters offers over 30 languages, including a
robust Less Commonly Taught
Languages program, and is home to 10 language-related graduate degrees
and 8 language-related undergraduate degrees. Associated with these
programs is a broad array of talented faculty members and graduate
students with strengths in second language acquisition and language
CeLTA's programmatic activities serve all
language departments on campus and focus on providing support for language
teaching and learning, including professional development opportunities,
graduate certificates, international teaching internships, co- and
extra-curricular activities, models for articulation and integration of
language and culture, technology solutions, and language assessment. CeLTA
also cuts across colleges through collaborative programming and research,
particularly in the area of proficiency. Finally, CeLTA reaches out to the
community through its CeLTA Language
