Community Outreach

Three SGS centers have been selected as National Resource Centers (NRCs) by the U.S. Department of Education: the Center for East Asian Studies, the Center for Latin American Studies, and the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies.

Supported by Title VI of the Higher Education Act, NRCs strengthen access to training in the major languages of their respective regions, broaden area studies training across all disciplines, and pursue innovative collaborations with other educational organizations and local communities. 

As part of the community engagement effort, the three NRCs in collaboration with other campus partners, have established the Education Partnership for Internationalizing Curriculum (EPIC), which focuses on strengthening the internationalization of curricula and the professionalization of language instruction at community colleges and K-12 institutions.
