At a time when the study of languages, literatures, cultures, and the humanities is being marginalized, departments need to find ways to expand their reach throughout campus and forge ties with K–12 schools, community colleges, and neighboring language communities. After brief remarks by speakers versed in these areas, we will devote half our session to discussion with the audience.
