What We Do

The SLC Language Exchange Program provides a platform for Cal students to share their language skills and cultural knowledge. Through language practice and community socials, we serve as a space for all students to meaningfully engage and benefit from Cal’s global diversity.

Our Philosophy

We believe that linguistic and cultural diversity is integral to Cal’s academic excellence and reputation as the world’s leading public university. By tapping into this diversity, we enable participants to refine not only their language skills but also their ability to function fluidly in diverse cultural contexts. Based on mutual exchange, we aim to foster meaningful connections within and across communities of language speakers, learners, and practitioners at Cal. By deepening our knowledge of one another, we seek to strengthen the bonds that unite us and break down the barriers that divide us. In doing so, we re-invigorate our respect for and commitment to our shared humanity.
