A PAL for Multilingual Student places a pin in a map

The Program for Advancement of Learning has faculty with expertise to work with multilingual students who also have learning differences. This population includes international students, students who have been raised in bilingual homes, bilingual students from other U.S. territories (like Puerto Rico), and adoptees from other countries raised by English-speaking families. Our faculty are trained to target the additional and unique needs of these students with learning disabilities. We work with advising, academic language skills, as well as the development of successful learning strategies for making the transition to studying in a new cultural environment.
