The Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy has an opening for a part-time (full benefits) coordinator for its World Languages and cultures outreach programming! This position promotes, disseminates, and expands the reach of the Center’s activities, focusing especially on educational outreach in K12 contexts, but also outreach to the University of Arizona community, other colleges, and the general public.
