Staff salaries and program costs for a new Global Language Initiative and the foreign language immersion programs of the university's San Antonio Language Academy.    

The Global Language Initiative (GLI), a year-long recovery initiative for cultural/linguistic experiences lost because of COVID, is sponsored by the University of Texas at San Antonio, an HSI that serves 45% first-generation students and 75% minorities and people of color. GLI centers on the San Antonio Language Academy (SALA), a Middlebury-style language immersion program. SALA provides intensive day-long, single-week, and multi-week co-curricular language immersion experiences comprised of courses, activities, and local field trips. SALA is for the hundreds of UTSA students whose plans to study, work, and research abroad were cancelled due to the pandemic. GLI will also offer global language and culture activities open to thousands in the region. Given the economic impact of COVID on minorities and UTSA, many students who lost opportunities do not have the means to “catch up” on their own and UTSA will not recover the ability to offer such programming prior to their graduations.
