Welcome to the website of the

National Committee for Latin and Greek


The NCLG is a non-profit organization sponsored and funded by numerous state and national associations.  It serves as a forum to identify nationwide needs and as a force for planning and implementing new strategies and programs in Latin and Greek Studies to better serve teachers and students. It  responds to both crises and opportunities in the Classics community. The NCLG also maintains a dialogue with its European counterparts.
THE NCLG lobbies annually in Washington, DC, for legislation on language education and current initiatives as a part of JNCL and NCLIS. It holds a  seat on the JNCL Board of Directors. It seeks to be a voice to government on behalf of Latin and Greek students and teachers, specifically, as well as helping to secure funding and maintain access to second language study for all students. If you wish to become involved in the work of the committee in this advocacy, please contact us. Also, you can click the sidebar "JNCL-NCLIS ADVOCACY."

You can donate to the NCLG using this form on the American Classical League site. Put NCLG in the gift designation box. A large part of the money donated to the NCLG goes toward JNCL-NCLIS dues.  These contributions thus keep the voice of the Classics in the national dialogue concerning language and education in a vital way.  Thank you for your support!
