NSEP Announces Major New Grant Award in Chinese K-16 Pipeline Project: University of Oregon and Portland Public Schools


The National Security Education Program (NSEP), at the U.S. Department of Defense, has announced a major award to the University of Oregon (UO) and Portland Public Schools (PPS), as part of its National Flagship Language Initiative (NFLI).

The Chinese K-16 Flagship focuses on the development of a national model for an articulated K-16 student pipeline with the goal of graduating linguistically and culturally competent students. The effort kicked off with a special public program at Woodstock Elementary School in Portland on September 19, 2005. ACTFL Director of Education Marty Abbott was among those who spoke briefly, along with Robert Slater, NSEP director, and Dr. Susan Kelly, special assistant to the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Plans) for Policy Planning and Evaluation.

A National Language Conference in 2004, together with a National Language Policy Summit sponsored by ACTFL, highlighted the compelling need for articulated programs that develop paths for U.S. students early in the education process to move toward higher levels of proficiency in critical languages.

The project will be overseen by the Center for Applied Second Language Studies (CASLS) at the UO and PPS. UO has a national-caliber Chinese Studies program, a large Chinese student population, and a significant number of Chinese-speaking faculty across a wide variety of disciplines.
