Summary

A University of New Mexico program in Spanish for professionals began in 1981 as a Spanish and Portuguese program to provide language training for personnel in health care, business, law, and education. The program encountered early problems of uneven enrollments, funding difficulties, and some lack of interest from the campus professional schools until the Department of Modern and Classical Languages indicated willingness to integrate courses into department operations and further liaison with the Division of Continuing Education and Community Services was established. Early results of this effort were intermediate classes for business, law, and medical professionals, to which were soon added introductory classes. These classes attracted teachers needing recertification. When enrollments had begun to stabilize, organizational and publicity problems threatened the program. Restructuring of program aspects such as faculty payment schedules, class locations, information dissemination, and contacts with the public school system solved many problems. Enrollments increased, a new curriculum for educators was developed, and a summer institute for Spanish teachers was inaugurated. A regional survey was undertaken to determine other educational needs and provide a basis for further program development. Reproductions of the university catalog pages relating to the program, course descriptions, flyers, and news releases are appended.(MSE)
