Cornell receives front page coverage for language program

Cornell College was featured on the front page of the Cedar Rapids Gazette because of a grant that is providing new language opportunities.

Language professors at Cornell College are teaming up with professors at Coe College to rethink the language-learning experience, incorporating ways to meet the needs of refugees and immigrants in Linn County.

This effort is possible with a new $50,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the development of a collaborative foreign language partnership, called “The Civic Humanities: A Foreign Collaboration between Coe and Cornell Colleges.”
