English as an Additional Language (EAL) Implementation Project
Project Description and Objective
English is an additional language for many SFU students, many of whom have particular learning characteristics and needs. The EAL implementation project, an institution-wide initiative, aims to address the learning needs of SFU’s dynamic and diverse student population.
Additionally the project aims to implement a comprehensive strategy that provides instructional, language learning and co-curricular support consistent with the learning needs of SFU’s culturally and linguistically varied student body, particularly students for whom English is an additional language.
The project is an offshoot of recommendations from a review committee that looked into issues pertaining to EAL supports and services established in Fall 2010 by the Vice President, Academic. A full report from the review committee was made public in July 2011. The report and other documents related to the project thus far can be found below.
