Ulrich Museum's Sculptures

Students and faculty from the Spanish Translation and Interpreting class have collaborated with WSU's Ulrich Museum of Art to translate descriptions of the museum's sculpture collection into Spanish in order to enhance our Spanish-speaking visitors' enjoyment of the sculptures located throughout the campus. 

Individuals discussing on Zoom

Spanish students and faculty have been engaging with Spanish-speaking patients and their family members, interpreters, and health care providers to discuss and document challenges in healthcare for Spanish speakers.

Day of the Dead in Wichita

Students and faculty in the WSU History and Spanish programs join forces to document the history of the local Latino community by collecting family pictures and oral testimonies. The project, entitled Somos de Wichita/We are Wichitans, is funded by Kansas Humanities and Wichita State University.
