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. Its Classics Alert Network  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.  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!

You can donate to the NCLG using this form.
