Would you like to see more highlights from your cohort of international TCLP alumni, or see more alumni activities organized in China and Egypt? The Teachers of Critical Languages Program (TCLP) is excited to announce a new alumni initiative for alumni engagement in China and Egypt: the TCLP Alumni Cohort Leaders.

Each alumni cohort leader will receive a special certificate acknowledging their commitment and leadership skills.
