Limited Capacity filling up

In this presentation, we first illustrate unprecedented linguistic diversity in the U.S., using data from the U.S. Census and the American Community Survey between 1980 and 2010. Community Colleges (CCs) are in the forefront of this new wave of linguistic and cultural diversity as CCs are often an entry point to higher education for immigrants and children of immigrants. Two linguistically and culturally distinctive stories are shared with the audience; one focuses on linguistic stigmatization among 1st and 1.5-generation Korean-American students and the other focuses on classroom experience of Latino/a students at community colleges. Pedagogical implications and recommendations for higher educational institutions will be discussed among the audience.
