Seven members of the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center's Board of Visitors (BoV) met with the Institute's leadership June 24-25 to discuss a variety of education related topics in foreign language acquisition.
The BoV is an element of DLIFLC's governance required by the accreditation authority, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
"The Board members are in a position to advocate for DLIFLC. Their expertise, access to government and private sector leaders and their understanding of the Institute's mission and vision make them natural links to external audiences," said DLIFLC Commandant Col. Sue Ann Sandusky.
The BoV visited the Emerging Languages Task Force and Multi Language Schools where they observed classes. Board members also visited the Continuing Education Directorate located at Ord Military Community in Seaside, Calif.
