Registration is open for the Spanish section of the Western Washington University Employee Language Program workshops, with sessions starting the first or third week of the quarter and running through the end of summer session. Open to all Western employees, these workshops support faculty and staff through professional development and encourage multicultural outreach and awareness. Language learners of all levels are welcome

There are no registration fees for these workshops.

Sessions will be a combination of hybrid (face-to-face/online) online only, or in-person only. Details are listed on the registration page.

WWU students facilitate courses and drive the availability of programs offered. We are working to bring back the Occupational English programs, expand the French program and introduce new courses you have asked for, such as American Sign Language.

If your department is interested in a multilingual outreach program, please E-mail with your request. We may be able to create a custom program to fit the language needs of your office.

The workshops are the result of a combined effort by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages, and Outreach and Continuing Education.
