About the Faculty Center

Mission Statement:

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning creates appropriate connections across campus in order to facilitate individuals’ growth as engaged university citizens and serves faculty, 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 junior faculty; 2) professional development focused on research-based teaching practices, acquisition of skills to support a diversity of learners, and academic career progress; and 3) institutional change relevant to teaching, scholarship and creative activities. Programming is designed to encourage reflective pedagogy and assist in creating a  learning environment for all students and faculty. The Center encourages self-directed inquiry through various modes including programs, learning communities, discussion groups, and conference participation.


Our Goals:

  • Promote a high standard of quality in teaching and learning
  • Support faculty in development of inclusive teaching principles
  • Support junior faculty throughout the tenure process
  • Build faculty leadership capacity
  • Maintain currency in the field
  • Create an inclusive community with equitable opportunities for all faculty
  • Represent the interests of teaching and learning at the university
