In an increasingly multilingual world, UW-Parkside students now have a state-of-the-art language laboratory to help them better understand the world. The university recently dedicated the Darshan Dhaliwal Modern Languages Laboratory in honor of Milwaukee businessman Darshan Dhaliwal.

Long on the campus "wish list," the new language laboratory features computer workstations with headphone/microphone connectivity allowing interactive small group and individual instruction. Students now have access to a variety of language software including CD-ROM based information, audio-visual applications, and publisher-specific Internet sites.

The Dhaliwal Modern Languages Laboratory serves the university's current 23 foreign languages courses. It also can serve new courses in psycholinguistics, teaching methods for foreign languages, distance education, and languages not offered through regular classroom instruction.

UW-Parkside Chancellor John Keating praised Dhaliwal for funding the laboratory saying it "enhances the university's mission" and positions UW-Parkside "at the front of meeting global challenges and opportunities."

The new facility is located in the Communication Arts Building
