SLLLC Launch - Call for Volunteers

We are very excited to announce the SLLLC launch event, which will be held on March 7th, 2018 (afternoon – evening). The Launch Committee believes that dedicated and enthusiastic participants are crucial for the success of this stimulating event. We would like to propose 3 different ways that you, as faculty, staff, and undergraduate or graduate students, could contribute and participate:

SLLLC Launch Slogan Contest - Now Closed for Submissions

We are looking for an impressive slogan to express the spirit of the School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures and to promote the learning of and research on languages. The winning slogan will be used in the announcement for the School Launch and printed on gifts being distributed to guests and participants at the event.
