The National Less Commonly Taught Languages Resource Center (National LCTL Resource Center; NLRC) is a Department of Education/Title VI-funded national language resource center housed in the Center for Language Teaching Advancement at Michigan State University. (What are LCTLs?)

The mission of the NLRC is to support and develop LCTL education by 1) offering high-quality opportunities for professional learning, 2) creating open and innovative instructional resources, and 3) forging strategic collaborations at the inter-institutional level. Eleven projects in these three focus areas will contribute to LCTL teaching and learning.
