The Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) Movement

The Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) Movement intends to make global competence a reality for students and to create alliances among educators to share practices and find ways to incorporate an international dimension in curricula, and, more generally, to achieve internationalization goals.

The Seventh Annual Conference on Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) will focus on how to grow and sustain CLAC programs.

Seasoned CLAC practitioners, those in the process of implementing programs, as well as prospective program developers, will come together to share ideas and best practices in our evolving and unique field of education for global citizens. This conference will be held at the University of Richmond in September this year.
