The College of Arts & Letters will be holding an information session/discussion with Veronica Thronson, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Immigration Law Clinic and David Thronson, Associate Dean for Experiential Education and Professor of Law, and co-founder of the Immigration Law Clinic at Michigan State University College of Law to discuss post-election immigration concerns.
The goals of the discussion are:

- To provide a brief introduction to available resources at MSU and in the Lansing area;
- To distribute accurate, responsible information about the potential challenges that people in our community may face if they are not citizens of the United States;
- To educate our colleagues working directly with students.

Join us for the Computer Assisted Language Instruction Consortium, which will be in Flagstaff, Arizona, at Northern Arizona University!
The theme of SLRF 2017, “Growing Connections in Second Language Research,” focuses on these developing links. Consequently, we invite proposals for paper and poster presentations that in some way discuss connections: amongst methodologies, fields, and people.
Conference Theme: Language Assessment and its Sociopolitical Context
The ACTFL Annual Convention and World Languages Expo is an international event bringing together more than 7,000 language educators from all languages, levels, and assignments. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive professional development experience that will have an impact on language educators at all levels of teaching and in turn help their students to succeed in their language learning process. Come participate in the world’s most comprehensive language education meeting of the minds featuring more than 800 educational sessions in a variety of formats that focus on innovative programs, emerging trends that impact the language profession, and research-informed practices. While the exhibit hall will showcase more than 250 companies exhibiting their latest products and services, it is a learning experience within itself where you will find exhibitor sponsored workshops, the ACTFL Collab Zone, the Social Media Lounge, a Career Café, and an ACTFL Confer-sation Corner.
Speaker: Dr. Staci Perryman-Clark – Associate Professor, Department of English, Western Michigan University
Drawing from her research and experiences designing and building partnerships between WAC, faculty development, and diversity and inclusion programming, Perryman-Clark describes the ways in which such collaborations can forward the mission of the CCCC’s Students’ Right to Their Own Language Resolution, supporting enrollment and retention efforts while also enhancing diversity and inclusion initiatives at the institutional level.
