This fall's "Spanish for Heritage Speakers" course, taught by Professor Viviana Rangil, worked on a real-world municipal project with the Saratoga Springs Housing Authority. Students in the course produced a Spanish translation of a lease agreement and supporting materials, which will help the Housing Authority in its community outreach. Pictured in the back row is Rangil (third from left), flanked by Housing Authority Executive Director Paul Feldman and two of his staffers.
