Advocating for the TESOL Profession, English Language Programs, and STUDENTS! 

UCIEP's Role

The role of UCIEP's Advocacy Committee is networking with government executive officials in the various federal departments, but especially the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State. 

  • The Advocacy Chair drafts letters to legislators, and encourages the membership to write to their own Congressional delegations on behalf of UCIEP.
  • The Advocacy Chair monitors important legislation, and makes the membership aware of new developments.
  • The Advocacy Chair also liaises very closely with his or her counterparts from EnglishUSA, IIE, NAFSA, TESOL, and the Alliance.
