The deans are the head of each Village. Our deans are professional educators with long-term commitments to language immersion and Concordia Language Villages; many started as villagers themselves.
Concordia Language Villages staff are active professionals. The deans and most leadership staff have lived for an extended period of time in countries where the language they instruct is spoken. Eighty percent of the deans hold an advanced degree. Many Concordia Language Villages deans have a history of holding office in national, regional and state language and educational organizations. Our staff presents at local and national language conferences, as well as the national ACA conference, and is active in the local ACA section.
