At the heart of the CUNY Language Immersion Program are its outstanding instructors. Their innovative coursework and teaching skills provide CLIP students with an engaging and rigorous learning experience.
CLIP faculty are ESL professionals who have expertise in content-based English language instruction and in the use of technology for academic purposes. Within programmatic guidelines, our instructors devise ESL courses that integrate English language instruction with an introduction to academic subjects. CLIP faculty have developed a rich body of courses and instructional approaches that have proven to be effective in preparing ESL students for the demands of college-level work.
The CUNY Language Immersion Program model has provided a framework for the development of similar programs within CUNY and other colleges and universities. CLIP faculty share their work through presentations at local, state, and national conferences.
