This short film called “Voices of UMBC” was by students in my graduate seminar, “Language in Diverse Schools and Communities.”

Our course goal in making the short film was to celebrate UMBC’s linguistic diversity and to highlight it as a cultural resource. Everyone who helped make the film, as well as everyone who appears in it, is a UMBC student! We are grateful for everyone’s participation, and we hope you enjoy it!
