ELI reaches out

     Marilyn Cooper, formerly of the Small Business Development Center at
the University of Wisconsin-Madison, has become the outreach coordinator
for Delaware's English Language Institute (ELI). This new position allows
the ELI to broaden its mission to provide business and educational
development throughout New Castle County for adult minorities with limited
English proficiency. Working closely with colleagues in the College of
Urban Affairs and Public Policy, Cooper will serve as a liaison to the
business community, state and local government agencies and minority
organizations to create support for vocational, educational and business
development programs.
     While at Wisconsin, she focused on customized vocational training and
on small business and economic development for minorities with limited
English. The English Language Institute was established in 1979 to provide
linguistic, academic and cultural support for foreign students, scholars
and professionals.
