KMEA Academy logoKansas Migrant & ELL Academy

The mission of the Kansas Migrant and English Language Learner Academy is to provide research-based professional development for educators who would benefit from additional training to ensure success for Kansas's diverse K-12 migrant and English language learning population.

To assist educators, videos are available about a variety of cultures students in Kansas come from. These are avialable from the link on the right, "Culture & Immigrant Mini-Documentaries."

KMEA was a partnership between Emporia State University and the University of Kansas from 2009 to 2012. At ESU, it was housed in the Jones Institute for Educational Excellence.

Information about the program can now be found at
