Center for Teaching and Learning
The Center for Teaching and Learning promotes student success and a culture of excellence through professional faculty development.
The Center is a place where college faculty and staff work in a collaborative environment to create rich, engaged teaching and learning experiences.
The Center endeavors to support dialogue, scholarship, innovation, and professional growth by inviting individuals to become members of an intellectually diverse, active learning community and is a gathering place for members of the faculty to share ideas and approaches with their colleagues and reflect on presentations of best practices in college instruction.
