Our mission

The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence promotes excellence in teaching and learning through professional learning opportunities. We aim to support and learn alongside faculty by offering quality educational programs and inclusive spaces for all to listen, share, teach, and build community. Our practices are grounded in Critical Race Theory, Antiracist Education, and Culturally Responsive Pedagogy. The CTLE focuses on increasing student academic belonging, promoting equitable assessment, and developing an inclusive curriculum to achieve student success.
