Italian Resource Center

The Italian Resource Center (IRC) at Central Connecticut State University provides resources, support, and assistance to those interested in the Italian language and culture.

The IRC is equipped with books, multimedia materials, and cultural resources indispensable to the teaching and diffusion of the Italian Language and culture.

By visiting the IRC, teachers and students of Italian can borrow a variety of didactic resources, and receive assistance in their work and study. The IRC is open to educational institutions, researchers, teachers, and to all those who are interested in Italian language, culture, and society.

The IRC regularly organizes professional development workshops for teachers of Italian in Connecticut and social activities related to Italy.

The IRC promotes and supports the teaching of Italian in Connecticut, thanks to the Partnership among the Consulate General of Italy in New York, and the department of Modern Languages of the Central Connecticut State University, in collaboration with the Italian American Committee on Education (IACE), which sponsors and supervises its activities.
