Title VI Language Resource Centers

In 1990 the U.S. Department of Education created its Language Resource Center Program under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and established three Foreign Language Resource Centers in the country. Twenty-five years later, the number of LRCs has grown to sixteen.

Language Resource Centers (LRC) are to conduct research on and serve as resources for improving the foreign language teaching and learning environment in the United States. While each center has its unique focus, all LRCs carry out activities in the following general areas:

- Research on innovative methods for teaching foreign languages, including the use of advanced educational technologies
- Development of new teaching materials
- Development of foreign language performance tests
- Publication of instructional materials in the Less Commonly Taught Languages
- Dissemination of research results, teaching, learning and assessment materials
- Affordance of educational opportunities for language teaching professionals
