English-speaking students in courses on cross-cultural communication often comment on how little actual contact they have had with people from other cultures. Similarly, students in English for Academic Purposes for nonnative speakers courses relate how hard it is to connect with native English speakers. De-spite obvious mutual benefit, there is seldom a close relationship between instructors of regular program courses and English for academic purposes (EAP) instructors. This paper describes a collaborative project which bridges these gaps within a university setting. The challenges and benefits of this collaborative project for all participants are presented, as are suggestions for establishing more institutionalized contacts across disciplines.
