July 2018

 Dear Colleagues,
There has been little down time on this side of campus with new courses taught in the GDL, a colloquium on New Frontiers in Global Education, the Virginia Governor's Full Immersion Language Academies, ACTFL training for administering the Oral Proficiency Interview and the Writing Proficiency Test, a summer research project dealing with gerrymandering and voter's rights, and cleaning out a new storage room of old items. Upcoming are two insightful Fall Academy sessions (language advising, and thinking globally and teaching locally in the GDL), an array of FLAVA workshops, and other unique courses taught in the GDL. As the summer progresses, I will keep you updated. 

I hope you summer has been profitable and uneventful.

Dick Kuettner
Director of the GDL
