Arctic College and UVic partner on language-revitalization program

January 14, 2015

Nunavut Arctic College and the Department of Linguistics at the University of Victoria have partnered to launch the Certificate in Aboriginal Language Revitalization (CALR) program at Arctic College, specifically for the Kitikmeot region. The CALR program was developed in consultation with local Inuit communities and is designed to “strengthen understanding of the complex context and characteristics of language loss, maintenance, and recovery, while developing knowledge and strategies for language revitalization within communities.” The program is open to anyone interested in the topic of language loss and revitalization. Completion of the program will provide a foundation for language-revitalization projects, or for further study in education, linguistics, or related areas. Arctic College News
