About the Mercer ELI

Founded in 1986 on Mercer University's Atlanta, Georgia campus, the ELI has been preparing international students for university-level academic study for over 30 years.

Though our mission has expanded to educating students for success in English in not only academics but also personal and professional contexts, our commitment to our students has never changed. Our faculty strive to achieve best practices in language teaching in order to meet student learning goals, and our staff are dedicated to providing student support services for advising, experiential learning, and full immersion into U.S. culture.

Our program is part of the fabric of the Atlanta campus and our students have the opportunity to engage with degree-seeking students through academic collaborations with our Schools of Pharmacy and Health Professions and through social collaborations with a variety of departments and schools.
