The Sweetland Center for Writing exists to support the improvement of student writing. To accomplish this mission, Sweetland administers LSA's writing requirements, provides one-on-one and online writing support to undergraduate and graduate students, teaches a range of writing courses and courses on teaching writing, consults with faculty teaching writing across the disciplines, offers classroom presentations on writing issues, runs an invitational faculty/graduate student Seminar on writing instruction, offers a Dissertation Writing Institute for graduate students, and conducts research on writing.
The English Language Institute offers instruction in the English language to non-native speakers enrolled in the University. The main purpose of this instruction is to help non-native speakers to become effective and fully participating members of the academic community. For this reason, the majority of the ELI courses are primarily concerned with English for Academic Purposes. The ELI operates a Writing Clinic and a Speaking Clinic as one-on-one facilities for those who have taken or are taking ELI courses in the relevant areas or are deemed not to need regular classroom instruction.
The mission of the Language Resource Center is to serve, support and promote the study and instruction of foreign languages, cultures, and literatures at all levels within the University of Michigan community. To fulfill this mission, the Language Resource Center provides leadership and excellence in the application, creation, and dissemination of innovations with respect to information, technology, media, and materials for all University individuals who utilize foreign languages in their studies, teaching, or research.
The Language Resource Center, in North Quad, provides students with a variety of materials and facilities designed to help them improve their command of foreign languages. Among the LRC's services for students are foreign language word-processing and other productivity software, computer-based applications for practicing grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and other skills, satellite-based television in many languages, foreign-language reference materials, publications, audio tapes, videos, and DVDs. There is also study space available so that students can work collaboratively on course projects or meet with instructors in the evenings. Courses offered by the department require regular use of Language Resource Center facilities. For more information, the Language Resource Center maintains a website, www.umich.edu/~langres
