Mission Statement

To prepare foreign-born students to function successfully in American colleges and university by providing a multi-level, intensive (18 hrs/wk) 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 students and residents who are academically qualified but need to improve their English before enrolling in credit courses full time.

To provide comprehensive English instruction to foreign-born visitors and residents of the community who want to improve their English but are not necessarily interested in getting a degree at Pace or another institution.

To provide customized ESL programming for special groups, corporations and grant-funded programs.
