SPI Program Updates:

In March 2017, SPI students in the Advanced Interpreting Practice course donned new t-shirts that identified them as volunteer interpreters for the 2nd Annual West Allis/West Milwaukee Latino Health Fair. The shirts were a hit among the fair organizers and students alike, making the interpreters easily visible for those who required their services.
