The Center for English Language Support (CELS) provides instructional assistance to non-native, English speaking students. Instruction is related to academic English language development with emphasis on writing. Each semester, CELS offers individual and small-group tutoring sessions and workshops on topics ranging from improving sentence structure to preparing research papers. Instructors with graduate degrees in teaching English as a second language conduct the tutoring sessions and workshops. CELS also has a large inventory of online instructional modules targeting academic English language skills.
In addition to instructional services, CELS provides testing and placement services for incoming non-native, English speaking students in order to determine their level of English proficiency and to recommend appropriate courses. Professional advice is provided to students on how to study academic English in a second language context.
