World Languages Program Values Statement:
The World Languages faculty members are passionate advocates of proficiency in languages and culture and are instrumental to the development of HCC students as global citizens. We respond with agility and flexibility to our students’ and communities’ learning needs with innovative, high-quality instruction and academic support. We inspire a lifelong love of and respect for learning and offer unique opportunities to students on campus, in the community, and abroad to make meaningful connections among languages, cultures, daily life and communication, multiple academic disciplines and different world views. We encourage foresight, creativity, and enthusiasm in teachers and learners. We value the cutting edge and maintain a high degree of awareness of the best practices in the field; we emphasize collaboration and partnerships, internal and external alignments, and continuous assessments and improvements. We foster a welcoming, supportive and integrative learning environment. As a diverse team of language professionals, we strive to create an inclusive network, align our strengths, and cultivate effective communication to maintain and enrich our program’s quality.
