English Learning Specialist

A terrific E.L. resource


The Writing Center's E.L. (English Learner) specialist is Laura Lindell. Laura works with students whose native language is not English; she works with multilingual students, too. She also consults with faculty members and administrators. Laura can provide a letter for a student to bring to faculty that explains and supports test taking accommodations, leaving it to the professor’s discretion whether or not to follow the recommendation.  It is expected that competency will begin to develop during students' first few semesters. The Writing Center Director, Eric Vrooman, is also happy to consult with faculty and E.L. students.
