Advancing Language Proficiency and Cultural Awareness
The Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures (CSLC) is dedicated to the advancement of linguistic proficiency and cultural awareness for students, staff, faculty, and spouses in all languages across the Notre Dame community.
We acknowledge our presence in the traditional homelands of Native peoples including the Haudenosauneega, Miami, Peoria, all of the Bodéwadkmik / Potawatomi peoples, and particularly the Pokégnek Bodéwadmik / Pokagon Potawatomi, who have been using this land for education for thousands of years and continue to do so.
Intercultural Development is at the CSLC
Intercultural competence/sensitivity or global competence is a set of life skills that can help us deepen and strengthen our interpersonal relationships, expand our worldviews, and perform at higher personal and professional levels in our ever-globalizing world. The CSLC offers the intercultural competence inventory, training, and more to help students, faculty and staff grow their awareness of intercultural communications. Learn more today!
