The ELI: Accomplishing our Mission over
40 Years as a leader in English language training


The English Language Institute, founded in 1971 and a unit of the Graduate School of Education of the University at Buffalo (UB), the State University of New York (SUNY), offers English language instruction, cultural orientation, and pre-academic training to international students, scholars, and professionals on an intensive and per-course basis. The ELI conducts the Intensive English Program (IEP), which specializes in preparing students for university study in the United States; the English as a Second Language Program for undergraduate and graduate students currently enrolled in academic programs at the university; part-time evening and customized programs for professionals; and overseas programs offering language-learning and teacher-training opportunities both in other countries and in Buffalo. In addition, the ELI actively supports the university's international recruitment effort and attracts highly qualified international students to UB degree programs, helps to internationalize the larger institution and promote the cultural diversity of the campus, and plays a major role in developing and administering the university's overseas sponsored programs.
