The National Council of Associations of Chinese Language Schools (NCACLS) is pleased to announce its third international conference on “Chinese Heritage Education: Cornerstone to US Global Collaboration” to highlight the importance of Chinese heritage education in the US for its role in global engagements and collaborations.
NCACLS has served as a national liaison organization for Chinese heritage schools since 1994. It currently consists of 15 regional Chinese School Associations across the United States, servicing nearly 100,000 students. Our mission at NCACLS is to represent member schools planning and sponsoring events relevant to Chinese language education in the national and international arenas.
For the organization’s third international conference, we have invited experts in K-16 Chinese language education to plan and lead the conference program. The Committee is led by Dr. Yu-Lan Lin, former Executive Director of CLASS, with following members: Theresa Chao, Henny Chen, Longhua Hu, Haohsiang Liao, Virginia Shen and Cathy J. Wei.
We cordially invite teachers, practitioners, administrators, researchers, stakeholders and educational organizations in the heritage school community to submit proposals and attend the conference.
