About the Program

The Educating Non-Native English Speakers (ENES) program is designed to broaden and deepen educators’ knowledge of and skills in the teaching and learning of emerging bilingual students, often designated as “English language learner (ELL). Graduate students in this program will learn how to better serve and support the language and content learning of pre-K-12, emerging bilingual students both instructionally and programmatically. The ENES program also aims to develop and strengthen the knowledge and skills needed to provide school-level, district, and regional leadership in shaping the educational systems that serve our culturally and linguistically diverse students.
