The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) provides opportunities for faculty to engage in a variety of meaningful learning experiences. CTL offers Faculty Learning Communities, workshops, consultations, and other educational activities that focus on faculty development. Teaching and professional development experiences build knowledge for faculty, instructors, and graduate teaching assistants.

Using methods grounded in evidence-based practice and scholarly research, CTL delivers experiences that encourage communication, foster collaboration, and cultivate mentoring relationships. These cross-disciplinary opportunities provide instructors with the teaching strategies, ability, and motivation to inspire students to success.
