LANGUAGE & CULTURE SERIES

EXPAND YOUR WORLDVIEW

Get Ready to Stamp Your Virtual Passport

In the fall of 2021, the University of Arkansas launched a Language and Culture Series to celebrate and share language, culture, and customs with the campus and its surrounding community.

The series is part of the UofA's commitment to its diversity and inclusion priorities and will generally align with the recognized spring and fall heritage months, February through November.

While the events are free and open to the public, participating UofA students will be given a virtual passport to track their attendance at events. Upon completing events, students will be entered to win various prizes.

The Language and Culture Series organizing committee has also partnered with Mullins Library to provide some language and culture resources available for review.

Please check the website frequently as events will be updated with links and event times!

There will be a QR code at the end of the event to capture student attendance.  If students attend at least two events during the semester they will be entered into the drawing to receive a $20 e-gift card to Walmart (two winners will be selected). If participants attend 3 L&C Series events they will get a Language & Culture Series T-shirt.  Finally, if students attend 4 or more L&C events they will be entered to win a $100 Amazon e-gift card

 

There is also a chance to win a $10 e-gift card if students complete the event survey. 

 

Happy Trails!
