Hi! My name is Dr. Jane Robison, and I'm the English Language Institute Director. I began working with the ELI program in 1996, and I have enjoyed seeing hundreds of students successfully complete our classes and go on to study in the university.
Welcome! I have been with Missouri State for four years and enjoy being of service to others. I graduated from Missouri State in 2015 with an M.A. in History. I love the outdoors and finding any excuse to build something with my hands.
I have been working at the ELI since 2012. I graduated from MSU in 2012 with a BA in Intercultural Communication and Diversity. I love working with students of all ages. I speak English and Spanish, but I would like to learn Japanese!
