TESOL students volunteering to help out at the ESL Cafe.

Career-oriented language programs

EMU TESOL programs are designed to provide students not just with a job, but with a profession. In that spirit, Professors Jo Ann Aebersold and Cathy Day founded the Buckheister endowment, in honor of Dr. Patrick Buckheister, who passed away at a young age. The endowment allows us to provide monetary support for TESOL students who are presenting at TESOL conferences. To date, 60 students have received awards. If you would like to donate, please go to the Patrick Buckheister Endowment page.
