The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies' Language across the Curriculum (LAC) program offers students the opportunity to apply their Spanish or Portuguese language skills outside the traditional language classroom. In collaboration with International Studies faculty the LAC initiative allows students to integrate their chosen language into their curricula. Graduate students serving as Associate Instructors will lead discussion sections in either Spanish or Portuguese.
Associate Instructors participating in Language Across the Curriculum are paid $4,000 in addition to their regular stipend. AI’s are expected to lead a discussion in the target language once a week and create in-class assignments that will encourage language fluency.
Application deadline for the 2020-2021 academic year is May 15, 2020.
Special eligibility requirements apply for Associate Instructors who are not United States citizens or permanent residents.
