About Us

The mission of the Institute for Language Education in Transcultural Context (ILETC) is to support and promote the teaching and learning of languages at CUNY in the context of New York City’s multilingual communities. The Institute is a research and resource center for language education at CUNY. As a research center, ILETC supports projects by language scholars and instructors in the fields of language pedagogy, second language acquisition theory, and translingual and transcultural communication. As a resource center, ILETC collaborates with language programs and faculty at CUNY to cultivate opportunities for professional development and promote the production and dissemination of materials for language education. ILETC was founded in 2012 and is supported through university-wide funding, as well as through the individual support of Hunter College, Queens College, the College of Staten Island, and the Graduate Center.

We want to hear from you about language education at CUNY! If you have any ideas or initiatives related to language education on your mind, please feel free to contact us via email at ILETC@gc.cuny.edu to set up an appointment.
