I don't think that Emacs Lisp in particular is
thought anywhere, but Lisp is thought at
universities around the world, sometimes as
part of courses in "functional programming",
where other languages might be included as
well, e.g. Haskell and Erlang (perhaps
sometimes SML).

I did such a course at UU in 2013-02-01 - it
was called "Advanced Functional Programming".

The Lisp wasn't Elisp tho but CL with the
SBCL compiler.

And I think it is better to teach CL than
Elisp, in all honesty...
