ALCO-WSU 2014 to Present!
ALCO started in 2014 to provide help and support to the community in Pullman and Moscow, therefore the Arabic school of Washington was established to organize the necessary materials and curriculum to achieve its mission as stated in the constitution as follows:
We the graduate students of the Washington State University College of Education establish the Arabic Language Organization (ALCO) as our legitimate governing group. The purpose of the organization is to:
● Provide Arabic Language courses to diverse Arabic-speaking learners and non-Arabic speakers to value and appreciate their Arabic language and culture heritages. Arabic Language courses are offered every Friday from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Teachers are volunteer Arabic speaking students.
● Provide a research and educational platform for American ESL teachers and pre-service teachers to know and learn about Arabic language and culture.
● Contribute to WSU scholarship diversity.
A general meeting will be held by ALCO board members once every month. The organization will not discriminate on the basis of age, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, gender, political persuasion, race, sexual orientation, or disability.
