BEMIDJI — Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College on Tuesday are expected to sign an agreement with Winona State University to open a branch of Winona State’s English Language Center on the BSU campus.
The signing ceremony will be held at the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system office in St. Paul. The schools are entering into a three-year partnership, which officially begins May 1. BSU’s English Language Center will open this fall.
The center, to be located in Bridgeman Hall, will provide language training to students who speak first languages other than English and are required to meet certain language proficiency requirements before enrolling at BSU.
