Our Mission

The University of Maine Intensive English Institute’s mission is to prepare students for success in academic study and offer opportunities for positive cross-cultural experiences in Maine and the U.S.A. The IEI bridges students for whom English is not a first language into UMaine or prepares them for admission to other Institutes of higher learning.  For students not wishing to matriculate into degree programs, the IEI is to provide the language support and cultural knowledge to achieve students’ educational or professional goals.
