ELI Mission

The mission of the English Language Institute is to provide language instruction, academic support, and intercultural training which enable all members of the University of Michigan community, regardless of the language in which they were raised or educated, to fully participate in the life of the University, and to excel in their scholarly, instructional and professional endeavors throughout their academic careers.  In the firm belief that this effort enriches the educational experience of domestic and international students alike, the ELI strives to collaborate with units across the University to foster an open, welcoming climate and to connect the Ann Arbor campus with the world.
