Employee Conversational Language Workshops are an initiative put forth by the President's Office to support Western faculty and staff through professional development and to encourage multicultural outreach and awareness. Western offers opportunities for employees to take classes in conversational Spanish at university expense. If the class time occurs during a participant’s regular work day, it will be considered paid work time.
The workshops are the result of a combined effort by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Department of Modern and Classical Languages and Outreach and Continuing Education. The selection process prioritizes those employees with a high need for basic conversational Spanish skills.
