It is the mission of the ELD Department to provide language support to all English Language Learners by teaching them to listen, speak, read, and write the English language and to graduate students who are truly bilingual. We hope to provide support to students by focusing on their individual needs through small-group instruction, project-based learning, and authentic learning tasks.
