Save the Date for April 6, 2022!

The Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL)  will host the second annual UArizona Language Fair on April 6, 2022, an event designed to raise the visibility of the wide range of languages that students study at The University of Arizona. Departments, programs, and UA student clubs representing the languages and cultures taught at UArizona apply for small grants to fund interactive activities that showcase the languages taught in their departments and spoken in their communities. The event is open to all students, faculty/staff, and visitors to campus.
