WLCP is a volunteer program that includes service learning and teaching with respect to world languages and cultures. WLCP learners explore basic language and culture in an informal setting.
The WLCP was developed by Khasilova, a UW Ph.D candidate, in 2013 and supported by UW College of Education faculty member Amy Roberts. It was launched in 2014 with the help of UW’s international community and graduate students. The students received internal grants to purchase curriculum materials and instructional technology, and to organize international students and faculty, visiting scholars and international community members as WLCP service instructors.
The Associated Students of UW, the UW College of Education, the Global Engagement Office and the Department of Modern and Classical Languages collaborate with the WLCP, assisting with scheduling the classrooms, recruiting volunteers and supporting cultural events on campus to celebrate world languages and cultures.
