The next SLAT Colloquium will take place on Friday, April 18 n Education 333 from 1:30-2:30. The colloquium will focus on the topic of publishing. A panel made up of Dr. Norma Mendoza-Denton and several current SLAT students with experience in publishing will lead the discussion, share suggestions, and answer questions. This will be a very helpful and important colloquium. Anyone interested in publishing should attend.
To begin the conversation and promote collaboration in publishing within the SLAT community, we have created a Google docs form where you can enter research interests and browse the interests of others for possible collaboration with fellow students and faculty members.
If you would like to access resources made available from current or previous colloquia, visit our Colloquium Resources page.
Looking for a language tutor? We regularly get this question in the SLAT office. You may contact a SLAT graduate student to arrange independent one-on-one language instruction. Please see the Language Tutors page.
