Language Resource Center

The Language Resource Center

is a unit in the College of Arts and Sciences that supports language teaching and learning. The LRC is located in Stimson Hall, next to Olin Library. We maintain a student facility with technology-based resources and environments for language learning. The LRC also supports teachers in materials development. Our support team includes a director, administrator, web director, and A/V developer. Finally, the LRC arranges and sponsors events of intellectual interest to language teachers, with usually six to eight invited speakers each year.
