Biographical Info:

Administrative History

The Center for Specialized Language Studies was a research center at Brigham Young University.

The center was established in 1970 as part of the College of Humanities, with responsibility for the promotion and supervision of language research and scholarship on campus. This included work on language research and services, teaching English to speakers of other languages, and language teacher training. The center was administered by Ernest J. Wilkins. In 1973 the center was reorganized as the Language Research Center.

Administrative History

The Language Research Center was formed in 1970 under direction of Dr. R. Max Rogers under the name of Center for Specialized Language Studies. It was created to promote research and scholarship in the languages. It was later in the Summer of 1970 that the center's name was changed to Language Research Center and put under the supervision of Ernest J. Wilkins. One of the projects under the Language Research Center's jurisdiction was the Intercultural Data Bank (ICDB). This was used to gather information for further understandings of foreign customs and languages. The Center conducted valuable research that helped lift the University to higher levels concerning languages and international cultures.
