The Ermal Garinger Academic Resource Center is an academic unit within the Humanities division of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. Our mission is to promote the study of languages, cultures and humanities at the University of Kansas through the use of technology and instructional media. In addition to housing an audio/video collection of over 13,000 items in 60 languages, the Center contains an 36-seat active learning classroom, two computer labs, a media-enhanced conference room, a soundproofed recording studio and a learning commons designed to facilitate collaborative work. We have a wide variety of portable equipment available for checkout, and provide instructors with a materials development area that includes the latest in hardware and software. We also offer training in new instructional technologies and support grant and research projects focusing on languages, cultures and the role of technology in the classroom.
