ELLC’s mission is to support all SU students who are multilingual speakers and for whom English might not be their first/primary language by providing them with a vibrant learning environment and resources to improve their academic English skills and by introducing them to elements of American culture(s) and expectations in American college classrooms.
English Language and Culture Bridge (ELCB) offers courses that provide training in academic English and American culture. It is designed to prepare students who have already been accepted into Seattle University to successfully meet the rigorous challenges of Seattle University’s degree programs.
ELLC Tutoring offers English-language help to all multilingual students at Seattle University for whom English is not their first/primary language. The ELLC tutoring sessions are designed to help students prepare for their academic and cultural needs at Seattle University and beyond.
Custom Programs are offered for groups of students from universities abroad wishing to improve their English and expand knowledge of American culture in the United States.
For more information on any of these programs, please contact the ELLC at ELLC@seattleu.edu.
