For CEU Faculty

The Elkana Center continues the work of the Center for Teaching and Learning in supporting faculty in their teaching on a voluntary, non-evaluative, and confidential basis. We offer faculty-specific courses and teaching certificates, as well as workshops, guest lectures, events, individual consultations, grants, and online resources.
