Host an EU2U Workshop

As part of our concerted effort to spread knowledge about the European Union and contemporary Europe to North Carolina, the Center for European Studies (CES) offers EU2U workshops on a wide variety of issues pertaining to the EU.

EU2U Workshops are professional development sessions offered to educators and students at K-12 schools, community colleges, HBCU/MSIs, four-year universities and professional schools. The sessions focus on EU-related topics, helping to bolster participants’ understanding of Europe and the European Union. We also work with educational non-profits and businesses. Thanks to generous grants from the European Union and US Department of Education, we are able to come to your classroom or workplace free of cost.
