Preparing Tomorrow's Professionals to Work with Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations

Century College


Minnesota has a proud tradition of welcoming immigrants and refugees, many of whom do not speak English fluently. At Century College the translating and interpreting (TRIN) faculty are helping prepare their colleagues to provide better guidance to students who will provide services in the future to culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The TRIN program is collaborating with faculty from programs such as Dental Assisting, Dental Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services, Law Enforcement, Nursing, and more.
