The SLAT doctoral program is an interdisciplinary program with 79 faculty members located in 17 collaborating departments. The program is designed to provide rigorous advanced training for researchers, teachers, and administrators concerned with second language learning and teaching. The SLAT Program has been recognized nationally as a superior interdisciplinary program. Several of our participating departments have been ranked in the top ten in the country, including Anthropology, East Asian Studies, Linguistics, and Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences.
Dear SLAT Community,
Friday, November 21, 2014 is Processes Day in the SLAT Colloquium series; it will be held in ILC 137, from 1:30-2:30. Note that this is the regular room.
Processes Day is a chance for all faculty interested in Processes to meet the new students, the continuing students, and SLAT minors. All of them are potential students in the various Applied Linguistics classes offered in our interdisciplinary program.
The colloquium will have the following format: all Processes faculty in attendance will introduce themselves and their teaching/research. Students will then have a chance to meet the faculty by going around the room and talking with them either singly or in small groups. The colloquium is a wonderful informal opportunity for SLAT students to meet faculty and to talk about their interests.
We urge all Processes faculty to attend.
We hope to see you at this last Area Days for the semester so that SLAT students can get to know SLAT faculty and SLAT faculty can get to know SLAT students!
