The Anderson Language and Technology Center (ALTEC) is part of the University of Colorado Boulder. We are a service unit that supports the language learning community at the University and in the state of Colorado. ALTEC has been making language learning increasingly interactive for thirty years and serves as a model for other universities seeking to update their language programs for the twenty-first century.

Mission

ALTEC’s mission is to broaden and deepen cultural understanding through innovative approaches to language learning and teaching.

Vision

ALTEC’s vision is to bring people together through advanced technologies and resources that propel inclusive, accessible and engaging language learning and teaching on campus and beyond. We achieve this by providing a wide range of services coupled with physical and virtual spaces where all can come to learn, grow and connect through languages. 

"Be" Statements

Be Multilingual. Be Adventurous. Be Unique.
