Mission of IELP

The Intensive English Language Program (IELP) at Daemen College is an academic English for Speakers of Other Languages ( ESOL) program.

The program serves undergraduate and graduate students who seek intensive English Language for academic, professional, and personal reasons.  The IELP directly fosters Daemen’s mission to prepare students for professional, intellectual and civic leadership whether they live in the United States or abroad.

       supports the college’s strategic initiative to encourage cultural diversity and internationalization of the campus

       The IELP is designed according to the Commission on English Language Program Accreditation (CEA) standards of good practice.

 Successful completion of IELP classes is one means by which international students and non-native speakers of English may meet Daemen’s English language proficiency requirement.
