The purpose of this change management plan was to address an alignment gap between an English as a second language Intensive English Program (IEP) and an International Pathway Program (IPP) at a southern university. The author utilized adult education specialization and how it pertains to English language learners (ELLs) to bridge the alignment gap. The author designed the deliverable to provide an implementation-ready plan to guide a redesign of the programs. The redesign goals were to improve English language learners' transition from language training courses to their degree-seeking coursework between the IEP and the IPP and ultimately increase the programs' marketability. Preliminary results from data taken from 225 students revealed a difference in academic performance between the two programs, which indicated the benefit of redesigning the IPP. The author distributed a quantitative needs analysis online survey among 38 students enrolled in the two programs. These data revealed three primary themes of English language skills, program choice, and program support factors. The results assisted in the development of and recommendations for the change management plan.
