Biographical/Historical Note
The South Asia Language and Area Center was established at the University of Rochester in 1964 under a grant from the United States Office of Education (National Defense Education Act, Title VI). Previously existing courses in South Asian studies were supplemented by new curricula in elementary Hindi and Indian civilization. The SALAC was an interdisciplinary program with courses based in the departments of linguistics, religion, fine arts, foreign and comparative literature, and anthropology. The SALAC ran until the 1972/1973 academic year.
