In an attempt to improve the learning environment for this group of students, a novel support group was established to address both academic and nonacademic issues. The impact and effectiveness of this support group are explored using an interpretative analytic approach. The findings suggest that English-as-an-additional-language support programs based on the principles of academic safety, purposeful design, curriculum relevance, positive faculty influence, and proactive enrollment have the most potential to facilitate student success. © 2020 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
