The Accent Modification Program at Missouri S&T is a voluntary program designed to provide professional development opportunities to non-native English speakers. The program seeks to advance cultural diversity and understanding by improving overall communication between students and faculty, increasing active participation in campus dialogue, and by promoting confident communication.

The program assesses the individual needs of each participant and uses that assessment to develop an individual instruction plan with outcome based objectives. Based on individual needs, a broad range of topics are covered including, but not limited to: listening skills, public speaking, American intonation, pronunciation of difficult English vowels and consonants, classroom management, effective email communication and presentation design.
Interested ranked faculty, tenured or tenure-track faculty should obtain a referral from their department chair and enroll directly with Vicki Hopgood at
