Celebrating Language Diversity




Stony Brook Stories

We are currently gathering personal stories about language experiences to help us understand the challenges and the opportunities for multilingual (or multi-dialectal) speakers at Stony Brook University. Our goal is to help create a campus where everyone feels welcome and supported, no matter what accent or level of linguistic proficiency they have.
