Literacy Institute:

Literacy is defined as an individual’s ability to read, write, and speak in English, and compute and solve problems at levels of proficiency necessary to function on the job, in the family, and in society.

Aligning with the definition of literacy, the goal of the Literacy PD Institute is to organize and highlight Adult Education and Literacy research, courses and curriculum, and Professional Development events related to Literacy. Those topics include, but are not limited to, content in ABE (Adult Basic Education), ASE (Adult Secondary Education), ESL (English as a Second Language), special learning needs, family literacy, and health literacy.
