Future Plans

The Department of Languages and the Language Laboratory are committed to continually furthering the goal of technological innovations in the areas of linguistic, literary, cultural, business, and health learning as they relate to each of the languages offered at Clemson University.

For example, the Laboratory has greatly benefitted from the support of the Humanities Advancement Board, which has funded the implementation of the CyberASL program for courses in American Sign Language as well as the rewiring of Daniel Hall 102 to allow for greater mobility and student access.

Future plans for the Language Laboratory include redesigning the space to increase the multifunctionality of each area. We believe that this redesign will encourage increased collaboration between students and instructors and better serve the Clemson University community as well as the greater Upstate community. We hope to develop a Laboratory that address the varied needs of those using the space for classes or individual work, as well as those who need a space in which to collaborate and communicate at all levels.
