Historical Background:

Originally, the Illinois Association for Bilingual Education (IABE) was a pioneer affiliate of NABE. It was founded in the early 70′s in response to the need for promoting educational services for potentially English proficient (PEP) students in the State of Illinois. In 1988, in an effort to include all educators involved with linguistically and culturally diverse students, the name was changed to the Illinois Association for Multilingual Multicultural Education (IAMME).


IAMME’s purpose is twofold:
The promotion of meaningful, effective, and efficient education for linguistically and culturally diverse students which includes the development of multilingualism and multiculturalism.

The promotion of quality educational practices for developing an appreciation for cultural and linguistic diversity in a global society.
