The Three Rivers Language Center serves nondominant language communities in their efforts to pursue linguistic rights and the use of their languages. Our team does this through research, education, training, policy work, and advising governments, nongovernmental agencies, and civil society organizations.
From a collaborative research community-based perspective, we work primarily with refugee and immigrant communities, indigenous communities of the Americas, and nondominant linguistic communities in Southeast Asia. Our work focuses on nondominant language communities and linguistic issues related to language documentation, pedagogy, linguistic and human rights, and much more.
The TRLC is home to Purdue University Fort Wayne’s Appleseed Writing Project and the Professors and Pathways program.
