Preparation and Dedication

The English Language Center is dedicated to training students for success in the transition from ESL classes to academic study at UNLV.


The mission of the English Language Center (ELC) is to provide instruction in English language and American culture to immigrant and international students whose native languages are other than English in a climate of mutual respect and acceptance.
