The Visiting Scholars Program includes courses designed especially to meet the needs of international visiting scholars across disciplines who are engaged in academic research at the University of Michigan.
The English Language Institute (ELI) recognizes that visiting scholars are valued members of the academic community who sometimes find academic life at the University of Michigan challenging due to language and cultural barriers and time constraints. Scholars often spend the majority of their time in laboratories or libraries where there may be few opportunities to develop their language skills, and they often do not take full advantage of opportunities to join their peers in the academic community. These courses are designed to help scholars increase their confidence using English; thereby, enhancing their professional contributions during their stay at the University of Michigan.
Visiting Scholars/Staff and Post Docs interested in attending a class should contact Carolyn Madden, Director of Instructional Division, firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.
There is a course fee for participation in the program. Scholars are encouraged to seek partial or full funding of the course fee from their respective department or sponsor. The course will be a ten week course, 2 hours per week.
The program will begin with the following course for the Winter.
