Committee for the Promotion of Latin (CPL)

The Committee’s purpose is to encourage and support all activities that promote the study of Classics, and of Latin in particular, in- and outside of the schools. Its principal role is to increase awareness, at each educational level, of our Classics community by offering (1) funding opportunities for promotional activities in the schools, (2) help for Latin / Classics programs in crisis, and (3) an ongoing conversation (e.g., via CPL panels and workshops at the annual meeting) about how the study of Latin can be promoted best in the field of education.
