About the Facilitation Center
We Funnel Ideas Into Action
The Facilitation Center at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) promotes the use of a facilitative process for information collection, group decision making, and planning by providing meeting facilitation services, training, and job analysis to clients throughout the country.
The Facilitation Center at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU) will become a national leader in the use of facilitation.
The Facilitation Center at EKU was established in 2003 and quickly became internationally recognized for their services, as well as, their professionalism, creativity and collaborative spirit. Three full-time facilitators and support staff, with the help of part-time, professional facilitators and a student assistant, annually facilitate more than 100 sessions for both University and outside clients.
As a branch of the EKU Training Resource Center (TRC), which is an innovative, university-based service organization, the Center is partially funded through grant partnerships with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services. The Center also works closely with the 21st Century Community Learning Centers through a grant relationship.
The Center is also funded through outside client contracts, which include private businesses, government agencies, educational institutions, as well as, university-based clients and funds.
