  • offering a full range of intensive English classes,
  • assessing language proficiency,
  • developing special programs for short-term and exchange groups,
  • orienting students to American culture and the academic environment,
  • providing academic and personal advising, and
  • facilitating students' transition to degree programs through support courses

in the belief that the university community as well as the language learners will be enriched through their participation at Kansas State University.
