SUPPORT: The purpose of the Bilingual-Multilingual Interest Section (B-MEIS) is to support and promote all multilingual learners' linguistic repertoires and multiliteracy skills as fundamental to the acquisition of a second or additional language.

ELEVATE: The IS believes that additive and dynamic approaches must be endorsed and implemented in educational institutions in the interests of students from diverse backgrounds.

SUSTAIN: The IS supports the opportunity and right of all individuals to develop, construct and maintain a diverse range of cultural, linguistic, and literate repertoires of practice.

TRANSFORM: The IS works to foster collaborative relations of power and address inequitable power relations in society and empower minority students to use their own repertoires of practice to bring about social justice.
