Summer Workshops for License Renewal



CU School of Education & Public Service Offers Summer Workshops for License Renewal


The Cumberland University School of Education will offer a variety of summer workshops for educators from June 4th through the week of July 16th, according to Dr. Eric Cummings, Dean of the CU School of Education.


The week-long workshops will be held on the Cumberland’s Lebanon campus. Most are three-semester-hour undergraduate courses evaluated on a pass/fail grading system. Some of these may be a combination of on-campus and online coursework.


“Each of these courses is appropriate for license renewal and/or professional growth,” Cummings said. “They cover an array of timely topics for educators who are looking to build upon their careers.”
