Dear colleagues,

We are in the process of preparing a publication entitled “Language Program Vitality in the United States: From Surviving to Thriving in Higher Education.” The volume is being developed in conversation with Springer for the Educational Linguistics book series.

This book will document and address root causes of declining enrollments seen in language programs at U.S. institutions of higher education over previous decades. It will identify obstacles created by programs and institutions that discourage students from either initially exploring or continuing with language study, challenge long-held beliefs about language program structures, as well as promote opportunities for language programs to address these obstacles and innovate in the field.

There are several opportunities for participation in this volume, including full chapters and also "thumbnail sketches,” which are vignettes or ideas for future innovation. Please see the https://celta.msu.edu/surviving-to-thriving for more details on the book, some recommended topics, and information on how to submit your proposal.

Deadline for Proposal Submissions: November 1, 2021

We welcome your contributions and conversations with you about this volume. If you know of others who may be interested in contributing, please feel free to pass along this information!

Sincerely,

Emily Heidrich Uebel (Michigan State University), Felix Kronenberg (Michigan State University), Scott Sterling (Indiana State University)
