The goal of HEIS News is to provide a forum for the exchange of views; research; and classroom methods, materials, and practices related to English as a second or foreign language in all higher education contexts worldwide. This forum also advocates for and examines issues of professional concern to ESOL professionals working in these various higher education settings. 


HEIS News is written for language teachers and administrators in a wide range of higher education settings--universities, community and junior colleges, professional institutes, and other postsecondary organizations. Each of these arenas includes ESOL professionals with varied expertise and experience in dealing with diverse student bodies.


HEIS News seeks inclusiveness, given the diversity its constituency. The newsletter strives to achieve balance in the following areas:
  • Articles, brief reports, and announcements that address the concerns of those working in the United States and those working in other countries
  • Coverage of issues of concern to the various constituent audiences based on educational setting, experience level, and area of expertise or interest
  • Both advocacy for and critical examination of issues
  • Practical articles directly applicable to classroom/program situations and discussion of larger issues surrounding working in higher education contexts
