Employee tuition waiver applications for spring 2021 semester are due Jan. 22. There is only one deadline date for the semester.

Waivers must be submitted prior to the full term drop/add deadline for each semester. This includes all terms/sessions within the semester. For example, if taking courses spring first or second session, the waiver is still due on the same deadline date as classes taken spring full term. Per policy, waivers submitted after this date will be rejected.

It is the employee's responsibility to submit a waiver. Signed waivers should be emailed to teri.begley@eku.edu. Scan the front and back to a PDF file. To learn more about the tuition waiver program, click "More On This Announcement" below.

Critical reading is a foundational skill for success in college, yet students often can't or don't read assigned texts in the ways instructors expect. As instructors, we can often be unclear about our role in helping to develop students’ critical reading habits. Using a multidisciplinary study, Critical Reading in Higher Education, and Reading Apprenticeship pedagogy, professional learning community (PLC) participants will examine the role of reading in their disciplinary courses, learn strategies for explicit instruction in metacognitive critical reading and design critical reading assignments and assessments that measure student learning. Facilitated by QEP Co-Director Jill Parrott.
