The Paul and  Edith Cooper International Learning Center (CILC) is an educational laboratory and social center that 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 disciplines. This is done by having trained staff and access to the following equipment:

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

This space is temporarily closed and has been repurposed to be a classroom for fall 2020. We still provide remote support and equipment for class and student projects, so please contact Abe Reshad if you have questions.
