One year on, implementation of the strategy’s goals and actions is underway and there are both opportunities and challenges for higher education institutions. This symposium will explore and address some of the key issues arising. Led by the School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at UCC, the (foreign) language schools and departments across the four constituent universities of the NUI have developed a varied programme of speakers and discussants.
