Indigenous and Diasporic Language Consortium of New York City

The IDLC is partnership of the Institute for Latin American Studies at Columbia University, The Jaime Lucero Mexican Studies Institute at Lehman College, and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at New York University, designed to promote the teaching, learning, and study of indigenous and diasporic languages of the Americas.

The Consortium allows currently enrolled students from each institution to study languages at the other, and provides research and resources to support and promote the teaching and learning of these languages.

The languages offered are Quechua and Haitian Kreyòl (NYU), Mixtec and Nahuatl (Lehman).

This project is supported in part by the U.S. Department of Education’s Title VI program, whose mission is to advance the study of Less Commonly Taught Languages.
