The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation:

  • Offers programs which engage faculty in continuous improvement of teaching;
  • Provides both formal and informal support for faculty teaching at all stages of their careers;
  • Fosters collegiality, community, and peer support around teaching;
  • Encourages faculty to explore new teaching methods and technologies; and

To advance these initiatives, CTEI offers workshops, grants, one-on-one consultations, and peer evaluations of teaching.
