The Center for Global Languages and Cultures is in the thick of an exciting physical and programming modernization. In addition to our new digital and physical resources, we have initiated a complete physical renovation of the space. As of Fall semester 2022, we have set up a variety of resources for both students, faculty and staff. For students, the CGLC offers tables and a Google Jamboard for collaborative work as well as a theater space and a media library where students can watch foreign language movies.  Furthermore, we are in the process of building a curiosity library where students can casually consult select print materials in the target language for additional practice.

For faculty, the CGLC serves a hub for technology support and collaboration as well. Please check back for a full list of our educational technology workshops and resources available. 

The media library includes 140 music CDs and more than 700 videos (digital and hard copy) and the library is always growing. The media titles cover a wide range of topics and music applicable to language and culture courses within the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Cultures. The CGLC also has two region-free DVD and Blu-Ray players. Use the links below to open lists of music and videos.
