Spanish class in ILRC

Flags in the ILRC

How were the Flags in the ILRC Chosen? The flags hanging in the ILRC were chosen under three selection processes. The first was to select flags that were representative of the languages taught at Miami University (i.e. Spain for Spanish, Israel for Hebrew, Portugal for Portuguese, etc.) The second was to select flags that most represented the international student population at Miami. With the help of the Office of International Programs, statistics were generated that gave us the number of foreign nationals per country currently attending Miami.The third selection  process was to select flags that most represented the faculty teaching in the four language departments at Miami. Flags were originally purchased based on these three criteria in 2001. A refresh occurred in 2014 in order  to update any flags that had changed and to add new countries not included in the 2001 survey. Listed below are the current flags hanging in the ILRC:
