Mission Statement:

The mission of the Intensive English Institute (IEI) is twofold, with both elements having equal importance. One goal is to facilitate international students’ progress in English proficiency and the knowledge of US culture necessary for success in academic coursework in the United States. The IEI aids students in the acquisition of English in order for students to begin their coursework as soon as possible.
The second purpose is to encourage the development and research of best practices in the area of language teaching and learning. Therefore, participation in classroom-based research, inquiry, and reflection is encouraged for all IEI faculty. Additionally, the IEI provides university students in appropriately–related graduate programs opportunities for hands-on teaching experience and practical training in a supportive environment.
