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.
