Mission Statement

The ELI’s mission is to teach and serve students in the Intensive English Program and in the community, provide support to the University, and contribute to the profession of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The ELI achieves this mission through service in three contexts: non-credit English classes, support for matriculated students at the University of Pittsburgh, and the field of TESOL.
