The student population in America has never been more diverse. With over 1 million international college students enrolled in US institutions and second-generation Americans accounting for approximately 20% of all U.S. college students, the need for language services in higher education has is massive. Clear and effective communication for students and faculty in an academic setting is imperative to equitable learning opportunities. Interpreting and translation services are key to establishing equal opportunity for your LEP and ESL students.
