The Center for Urban Language Teaching and Research (CULTR) is one of the U.S. Department of Education’s sixteen National Foreign Language Resource Centers (NFLRCs). Supported by nationally recognized language professionals and grants under Title VI of the Higher Education Act, the NFLRCs create a national network of resources to broadly improve world language education in the United States.
CULTR is guided by its core values of access, advocacy, outreach, and research and has gained a national reputation for innovative approaches to promoting access to language education for all students regardless of their socioeconomic and ethnic background.
