Emory recently unveiled a name change for its continuing education division.
Emory's Center for Lifelong Learning (ECLL) has been rebranded as Emory Continuing Education (ECE). ECE will maintain and build upon the established portfolio and reputation of the ECLL.
"The change in name is more representative of what the program offers," says Beverly Cormican, Emory's associate vice provost for continuing education.
ECE sustains a wide-ranging catalog of classes and programs to foster the continuous development of education and other talents needed for employment and personal fulfillment.
"As an established educational resource for metro Atlanta and beyond, Emory Continuing Education will continue to deliver a variety of educational options for corporate training and personal development," Cormican says.
While ECE is making the transition to a new name and new insignia, the program continues to provide well-known certificate programs, computer training, personal enrichment classes, educational instruction for seniors and a host of other course options for participants.
Along with its new name and branding effort this year, ECE celebrates 60 years at Emory concurrently with the University's 175th anniversary.
"Both anniversaries are a testament to Emory's commitment and creativity in instruction and learning," adds Cormican.
Employee discounts and special offer
As always, Emory faculty and staff receive a 10 percent tuition discount for all professional classes and certificates at ECE. And as a special loyalty reward for its students, those who visit and become fans of the new ECE Facebook page will be sent a discount code for 15 percent off online registration completed between now and June 15, 2011 (some restrictions apply).
