Multilingual Specialists

The SLAC Language Specialists (SLACLS) is a community of second language writing practitioners and their allies at small liberal arts colleges across the United States that has come together to share best practices and support each others’ professional growth through its online listserv and, whenever possible, at professional conferences. The group is committed to the academic success and integration of multilingual students, both domestic and international, in all aspects of SLAC life. As a SLAC-WPA subgroup, SLACLS advocates for inclusive programming, pedagogies, and administrative practices in writing programs, writing centers, and other academic disciplines across liberal arts institutions. Its members also aim to support, disseminate, and collaborate of scholarship that contributes to second language writing and related fields.
