What is Title VI?
Title VI centers are essential to the development of American expertise in critical languages and cultures, as well as to fostering international education. In awarding the grants, the Department of Education designated six HLS programs as National Resource Centers:
- African Studies Program
- Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies
- Center for the Study of Global Change
- Center for the Study of the Middle East
- Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center
- Robert F. Byrnes Russian and East European Institute
The Hamilton Lugar School Center for Languages of the Central Asian Region and the National African Language Resource Center also received four-year funding through Title VI as National Language Resource Centers. In addition, the Islamic Studies Program, the Institute for European Studies, and the six National Resource Centers received Foreign Language and Area Studies awards.
