C-LAC Section Proposal Form

Students can register for an approved C-LAC section on BannerWeb within the first five weeks of classes. 

We encourage faculty to complete this form within the first three weeks of classes, or by ​Friday, September 9, 2022 for the Fall 2022 semester. Once submitted, we will review it quickly and respond to the proposal. If approved, we will also notify the registrar's office with a request to create the C-LAC section.

If you have taught a C-LAC course in a previous semester, please contact Ellen Sayles, Associate Dean of International Education at esayles@richmond.edu to request the course to be reopened. 

C-LAC sections are led by the faculty member in charge of the course, or by C-LAC Assistants chosen by the professor in consultation with the C-LAC coordinator. 

Please fill out this form and click on "Submit" to propose a C-LAC section.
