English Language Center to Open on Parkside Campus
By: DeAnn Possehl
UW-Parkside is excited to announce a new partnership with ELS, a leader in English language instruction for international students. ELS operates state-of-the-art language technology centers throughout the United States and in several foreign countries. The Parkside English Language Center will open in August 2016.
According to DeAnn Possehl, Associate Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management "this partnership aligns nicely with the strategic enrollment plan adopted in spring 2014. An English Language Center located on our campus will provide a pathway to Parkside for international students that helps ensure their success on our campus by strengthening their language skills and by acclimating them to our campus and our community. By partnering with an internationally recognized provider, we will also increase our visibility internationally as we try to grow our international student enrollment."
