UConn to Embark on Dual-language Education Research

The University of Connecticut has been awarded a $179,000 grant from the US Department of Education’s Office of Postsecondary Education for a new research project centered on reimagining dual-language education. The project’s purpose is to improve the ability of dual-language programs to promote the equitable bilingualism and biliteracy development of all students through a greater focus on sociocultural competence.
