The idea of establishing the Language Resource Centre (LRC) as a centre for language related services at Sokoine University of Agriculture (SUA) and the surrounding communities was conceived in 2014 by  the Department of Language Studies (formerly, Department of Social Sciences).

The centre, which has been established through the support of SUA and the Innovative Agricultural Research Initiative (iAGRI) programme, is the hub of professionally designed face-to-face and online programmes to English language learners at SUA and the neighborhood.
