El Centro de Español


El Centro de Español is a key player in Elon’s unprecedented university commitment to diversity, inclusion and global engagement as second language acquisition must be a major goal of a university that emphasizes its global nature and programs.  El Centro provides a space to exercise cultural humility and dialogue while exploring questions like: what is race, racial heritage, social identities and inter-sectionalities, breaking stereotypes and prejudices about Latinx/Hispanic cultures, all while understanding why these topics are important to our work in higher education.


a. We offer high quality and effective, non-credit bearing Spanish language instruction through dynamic teaching methods that are centered around faculty, staff and students, and their individual language goals and needs, providing an intimate class size and a laid back and meaningful atmosphere.

b. We provide our participants with immersion-like experiences and settings so that they are exposed to authentic Hispanic/Latino cultural experiences.

c. We support the local community by coordinating volunteer work in projects that have a positive impact related to Spanish language learning and understanding of Hispanic culture.

d. We serve as one of the support systems for international and domestic Hispanic/Latino students, faculty and staff.
