Background on National Resource Centers
The National Resource Center Program from the U.S. Department of Education provides funding grants to American universities to establish, strengthen, and operate language and area or international studies centers that will be national resources for teaching and research in specific world geographies. National Resource Centers teach at least one modern foreign language and provide:
- Instruction in fields necessary to provide a full understanding of the areas, regions, or countries in which the languages are commonly used;
- Resources for training and research in international and foreign language aspects of professional and other fields of study; or
- Opportunities for training and research on issues in world affairs that concern one or more countries.
Furthermore, National Resource Centers:
- Provide outreach and consultative services on a national, regional and local basis.
- Maintain linkages with overseas institutions of higher education and other organizations that may contribute to the teaching and research of the center.
