VP-academic Jon Driver has struck a committee to review organizational and programming options for improving the language skills of prospective and current students for whom English is an additional language (EAL). The committee, led by Sarah Dench, director, university curriculum and institutional liaison, will be looking for input from faculty and staff currently working to support EAL students, as well as from EAL students. The committee will review existing programs as well as those at other universities. Driver expects to have a comprehensive report by spring 2011 that will make recommendations on what EAL students and prospective students need and what programs and organizational structures SFU should change or implement to meet these needs.
