Center for Teaching and Learning

Our Mission

The Center for Teaching and Learning supports faculty members in their work as teacher-scholars by incorporating evidence-based practices and cultivating reflective practice. We assist faculty members in providing our students with a career-oriented, forward-looking education that prepares them to succeed in a global economy and an increasingly technological world. We pay particular attention to how social, linguistic, and cultural diversity both affects and enriches the student experience.

We build partnerships across campus, recognizing that together we can achieve goals we cannot reach individually. We strive to build a fully-engaged community—a community of scholars, a community of learners, a community of professionals working together to give our students the best education possible.
