About the Faculty Center

Mission Statement:

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning creates valuable and appropriate connections across campus in order to facilitate individuals’ growth as engaged university citizens; and serves faculty, pertinent supporting offices, and the institution in pursuit of teaching, scholarship and creative excellence. The Center's three areas of activity are 1) induction and ongoing support of faculty; 2) professional development focused on research-based and culturally responsive teaching practices, acquisition of skills to support diverse learners, and academic career progress; and 3) institutional change relevant to diversity, equity and inclusion in teaching, scholarship and creative activities. Programming is designed to encourage reflective pedagogy and assist in creating an equitable learning environment for all faculty and students. The Center encourages self-directed inquiry through various modes including programs, learning communities, affinity and discussion groups, and conference participation.

Our Goals:

  • Promote a high standard of quality teaching and learning encompassing a commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • Support junior faculty throughout the tenure and recontracting process
  • Support faculty in development of inclusive teaching principles
  • Create an inclusive community with equitable opportunities for all faculty
  • Represent the interests of teaching and learning at the university
  • Build faculty leadership capability
  • Maintain currency in the field
