The Paul and  Edith Cooper International Learning Center (CILC) is an educational laboratory and social center which enables students, faculty, staff, and community members to build proficiency in world languages, consider new perspectives, and explore cultures. We promote language learning and teaching through professional development and student support, while connecting people and organizations to encourage collaborative research and the internationalization of liberal arts education.

The CILC sees itself as primarily a digital makerspace as it encourages the building of relevant artifacts connected to language, culture, and many other disciples. This is done by having trained staff and access to the following equipment:

  • green screen recording room
  • audio recording booth
  • 3D printers, and
  • iMacs with a wide variety of image, video, and audio editing software suites
