Kate Pope joined North Central College in 2013 to launch the College’s year-round intensive English program, the English Language Institute (ELI). To this position, Pope brings her own experience of studying abroad, learning and speaking a second language (French), teaching in a foreign country, and developing and leading an Intensive English Program at a university. Since the inception of the ELI, Pope has expanded Institute offerings to include summer programming for high school students, custom language programs, and conditional admission for both undergraduate and graduate students. She is passionate about integrating the Institute into the College campus and has given presentations at local and international TESOL conferences about how to effectively support intensive English program students at an undergraduate institution.
