CLIC is a teaching and learning space designed to seamlessly integrate information technologies into the teaching and learning of languages and cultures. More than ever before in history, college graduates must develop competencies to work and live in a global environment. Our graduates – and future leaders – must not only be able to speak with our global neighbors, but to communicate with them effectively and with confidence.

The best practices of language education tell us that such cultural competencies cannot be achieved through the simple memorization of vocabulary. Instead, students must engage the language and culture they are learning. Such engagement would be an insurmountable challenge at a small University in rural Oregon, were it not for the opportunities provided by advanced information technologies.

CLIC is a collaborative partner with the faculty and staff of the College of Arts & Sciences, helping bring to bear the best pedagogical materials and methodologies on the teaching of languages and cultures.
