I'm writing to let you know about an opportunity to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Linguistics! Each term, thousands of students from hundreds of post-secondary institutions in the U.S. and Canada are participating in the Wikipedia Student Program. The idea is simple but powerful - students improve Wikipedia content as part of their coursework. The benefits of running a Wikipedia assignment are myriad, from promoting digital literacy to the development of critical research and writing skills, but at its core, students get to engage in a project with real world impact that has the potential to reach millions.

Wiki Education provides all the support you'll need to successfully integrate the project into your course. The program is free of charge and is open to all classes taking place at institutions of higher education in the U.S. and Canada.

Priority will be given to classes that sign up by July 29 for the Fall 2022 term. To learn more about the program, visit or email Helaine Blumenthal directly at

I hope we can work with you and your students in an upcoming term.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
