Center for Intercultural and Multilingual Advocacy
"To foster knowledge through teaching and learning, ethics through action and reflection, and advocacy through compassion and commitment."
Welcome to the Center for Intercultural and Multilingual Advocacy (CIMA) at Kansas State University. Our center offers a broad array of ESL undergraduate and graduate programs of study. We strive to provide academic programs that incorporate the most up-to-date technology while simultaneously providing our graduates—at all levels—to be career ready upon graduation.
We not only present the research-based and technological concepts in each of our program areas, we also provide experiential learning (i.e., practicums, internships, and field laboratories) to allow our students to effectively perform immediately once they enter their profession.

Current Domestic Partnerships
In 2006, CIMA created partnerships with multiple universities and colleges across the nation to replicate our CLASSIC© ESL Program (e.g., Martinez, Penner-Williams, Herrera & Rodriguez, 2011; Bowman-Perrott, Herrera, & Murry, 2010). K-State worked one-on-one with eleven potential partners to write proposals for the Title III NPD program, and of those four chosen and funded, one partner chose to replicate without Title III support, bringing our total to five partners. Currently, our five partners are:
- Colorado State University
- University of Arkansas
- University of Georgia
- Eastern New Mexico University
- Morningside College
More information about previous partnerships can be found on the CLASSIC© ESL Program page.
