The Creole Language and Culture Research Institute (CLCRI) was established on October 26th 2016.
There was a need to embrace the creole language and culture in the University’s structure. It was a way of getting the Seychellois people to further build their identity and to have a society where the people know their history and are well-versed in the different features of its society.
As is the case in most countries, it is the university that should play an important role in the construction of the country’s national identity, social and psychological stability.
CLCRI’s main objective was to create an academic forum for the advancement of the creole language, culture and the creole society as a whole. This is to be done by collaborating with other organisations in our region and in other parts of the world.
