EAP Communities

Join an EAD CommunityEAP Community events are available to students enrolled in Intensive English, English as Academic Discourse, and Basic Composition courses. The EAP Community initiative provides a space for students to exchange ideas, discuss academic concerns and create community here at the Rutgers-New Brunswick campus. We encourage students to participate in one, or all, of the exciting networking and learning opportunities.   

Events are led by our EAP Undergraduate Interns who are helping to create a community of support and exchange for multilingual students. Interested students are asked to RSVP for each event as space is limited!
