Beginning in 2017, the Indiana Language Roadmap is developing and implementing a statewide plan to strengthen world language learning, with collective input from stakeholders across business, education, health care, and government sectors. This project was supported for its first two years through the Language Flagship, an initiative funded by the Department of Defense through their National Security Education Program and administered by the Institute for International Education.
Indiana Language Roadmap
The Indiana Language Roadmap initiative is a collaboration between the leadership team, advisory board, regional leaders, and "Community of Transformation" regional committees. The advisory board consists of nine members who represent multiple sectors across the state and are providing input throughout the writing and implementation of the Roadmap. There are ten regional leaders who are working collaboratively with the project team to write the Roadmap plan and further its implementation. The regional leaders are also responsible for recruiting “Community of Transformation” committees for their region to provide additional input on the strengths, challenges, and interests and to ensure multiple perspectives are reflected in the Roadmap.
