ESL: English as a Second Language

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Program at Southern Utah University (SUU) is a dynamic teaching and learning community dedicated to supporting students in two ways: (1) We help students to achieve academic English proficiency sufficient for matriculation into university; and (2) We support students' continued development and improvement of their English language skills. The ESL Program serves these endeavors and supports the larger mission of SUU and the School of Continuing & Professional Studies by:

  • Fostering academic excellence, technology, and experiential learning.

  • Connecting international students with the larger university community.

  • Immersing international students in American popular and academic culture.

In so doing, we enrich and broaden the cultural experience of our students and the SUU, local, and world community.
