The Anthology course evaluation system will provide you with the ability to identify essential learning objectives, to share your evaluation course link with students, and to view reports when data has been released to you. Use your Etown username/password to access the Anthology Faculty Landing Page.
Faculty course evaluations are submitted via Survey Monkey.
Starfish is a software tool that enhances advising relationships and student success at Elizabethtown College. Faculty and staff can easily view students' progress toward academic goals, identify road blocks to success, and intervene when students are struggling. Students receive real-time feedback, encouragement, and acknowledgement through flags and kudos and can easily connect to faculty, advisors, and staff through a network of information services.
SGPS students can access Elizabethtown College's High Library resources both in-person and online.
You will be prompted to supply your user ID and password; the same information used to access your Etown email account (also referred to as your network account.) Once you have entered your User ID and password, you will be returned to the original library access page from which you started. Even though it looks the same, you now have access to the resources on the site.
