The Curriculum Knowledge Center (CKC) is a special center and library committed to impacting our metropolitan region in southeast Michigan through learning, teaching and outreach.

The CKC serves as the gateway to CEHHS for children, families and teachers to support teaching and learning and serves as a conduit vehicle for enrollment and persistence in college. The CKC operates as a resource for families by supporting each child's potential as a future college student and encouraging families to continue their own education through enrolling in college courses or other CKC opportunities.

The Curriculum Knowledge Center has a variety of resources, student textbooks and equipment available to develop lesson plans, to fulfill class assignments and design presentations. The resources found in the CKC assist the pre-service teacher in understanding the full scope of what is necessary to become an exemplary teacher and contribute to the success of the education and health and human service students in preparing their coursework. Computers, scanners and software are available for student editing of video presentations. Print materials and study guides for the MTTC are available for check-out. The CKC offers all College of Education, Health, and Human Services students a place to study and complete group projects.

The Curriculum Knowledge Center is located in 267, FCS (Fairlane Center South). Please note new hours of operation.
