Since 1979, the IELI at Creighton University has been helping students from different language backgrounds enhance their English skills.  Core courses in grammar, writing, reading, and speaking/listening focus on academic language skills.

IELI classes meet four hours a day, Monday through Friday, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.; additionally, there are regularly-scheduled co-curricular activities outside of the classroom. The IELI has a full semester (17-week) session in the fall and spring, and an accelerated 9-week session in the summer with 4 levels: beginner, intermediate, high intermediate, and advanced.

Our Mission

The mission of the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) is to

  1. provide intensive English instruction and support services to help prepare IELI students for the academic rigors necessary at Creighton University;
  2. promote the practice and scholarship of English language teaching in an environment of integrity and respect;
  3. provide guidance in the areas of intercultural understanding, campus and community participation, and global citizenship; and
  4. reflect and support the mission of Creighton University.
