English Language Institute

Our Mission

At the English Language Institute, our mission is:

  • To prepare international and multi-lingual students to function successfully in American colleges and universities by providing a multi-level, intensive program of instruction in the English language and American academic culture. In so doing, the English Language Institute enables the University to recruit both international and other non-native-English-speaking students who are academically qualified but need to improve their English prior to enrolling in credit-bearing courses.
  • To provide quality instruction to students who need and wish to improve their language, communication, academic or professional skills.
  • To provide custom English language and/ or content-based educational experiences for special groups, organizations, international institutions and grant-funded programs.
