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. This collaboration ranges from individual consultations, research-informed resources, and other support on specific topics to forums for sustained dialogue and growth. The Elkana Center also serves as hub for research on higher education and on teaching across CEU.
