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 available 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.
