English Language Learners Program

Description

The University of Houston is often recognized as having one of the most diverse student populations in the United States. This diversity comes in many forms: cultural, educational, socioeconomic, generational, and linguistic.

The Writing Center strives to provide assistance to our diverse student population, whatever their degree program, by incorporating support for multilingual writers into all of its writing programs and projects. Writing Center staff, experienced in teaching university-level writing, offer expertise in applied linguistics, pedagogy, and assessment to both students and faculty.
