On Thursday, November 15th, past and present members of the Andrew Romay New Immigrant Center (ARNIC) gathered for the sixth-annual Thanksgiving celebration at the ESU. This evening is the highlight of the year for ARNIC members, many of whom are celebrating their first Thanksgiving in the United States.
At this time of great sadness in the wake of the hate killings in Pittsburgh, the English-Speaking Union joins the nation in mourning. We stand with our partner HIAS, targeted during this tragedy for their role in resettling refugees. We support all of our partners who are committed to the American ideal of welcoming those in need, including refugees and asylum seekers. As we approach the one hundredth anniversary of our organization dedicated to global understanding, our mission is now more important than ever.

This summer, TLab is sending teachers from throughout the country to study at some of the world's finest institutions of higher learning. Why? To enrich the education of teachers so that they, in turn, can share their enhanced knowledge and experiences with their students.
The ESU has always valued teachers and education. Since 1957, we've sent thousands of teachers abroad each summer to enroll in professional development courses at the University of Edinburgh, The University of Oxford and Shakespeare's Globe.
