“Educating the Educated: A University-Wide Language Diversity Initiative, ” is establishing a comprehensive approach to the issue of language diversity on campus. The Model is a collaborative effort by members of CHASS, DASA, and College of Education.
Every student, faculty, and staff member who comes to NCSU will be exposed to dialect diversity education and gain some understanding of its value. We believe that by highlighting this often-unrecognized type of diversity in a systematic way, we can make CNR a more inclusive linguistic environment for all of its constituents and expose issues of language-based stratification and inequality in systematic and comprehensive ways.
