The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) provides support for faculty professional development, pedagogical consultations, instructional design support, and graduate teaching assistant professional development.  


The Center for Teaching Excellence strives to support the university in providing all students a quality learning experience and achieve excellence in teaching by developing and offering all who teach programs for course development and improvement, implementing new instructional technologies, and providing support services based on pedagogical methods informed by research on teaching and learning.


The Center for Teaching Excellence staff believes that every faculty member, instructor and teaching assistant has the power to be an excellent teacher. To that end, we offer a variety of engaging programs, resources and opportunities—for novices and veterans—to enhance the quality of teaching and learning at the university.
