About IEP

UCR IEP Offers a Unique Path to Success

The International Education Programs (IEP) at the University of California, Riverside (UCR), has been providing English as a Second Language (ESL), academic, and professional programs since 1975.

Our curriculum is continually evaluated and updated to ensure the best U.S. learning experience. Every year, students graduate from our programs and continue into exciting international careers, and/or pursue further academic study.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to ensure high quality, innovative English language and professional programs to meet the diverse personal, professional, and educational goals of our international students.

We provide students the opportunity to explore, participate in, and enrich their knowledge of the U.S. and the world, through the shared development of English language and academic skills.

Through teamwork in a multicultural environment, we encourage students to understand themselves, build confidence, and develop a vision for their future.

The values of mutual respect, professionalism, and excellence in teaching and service, guide us in our work. We value the unique contributions of each teacher, staff member, and student, in creating one of the best international education programs in the nation.
