In addition to their academic expertise, our language education faculty have experience in organizations such as the TESOL International Association, American Association for Applied Linguistics (AAAL), American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), and the International Research Foundation for English Language Education.

They are experts in language education, curriculum development, language assessment, applied linguistics research, and language program administration in diverse settings (e.g., ESL, EFL, English for academic purposes, foreign language teaching, content-based language teaching). Several act as consultants to think tanks, international organizations, educational organizations, and universities involved in language education. They are dedicated to modeling effective pedagogy in their own teaching and actively engaged as academic and professional mentors to students and alumni.
