  • WELCOME 

     

    Hello, and welcome to the Center for English Language and Culture for International Students at Western Michigan University. 

    Since its founding in 1975, CELCIS has become an international leader in preparing students for academic and professional success through traditional and short-term English as a second language programs at WMU. Studying in the CELCIS program will give you the academic knowledge you need to succeed when you enter a degree program, or in your workplace. A full menu of cultural, recreational and volunteer opportunities are hosted by the program year round, which can help you practice what you have learned in the classroom.

    Along with our highly experienced faculty and staff, I invite you to come to Kalamazoo to improve your English, to develop a fuller understanding of America's diverse cultural mix and to discover the excitement of being a Bronco!

    Sincerely, 
    Eva Copija, CELCIS Chair
    Western Michigan University
