CELT’s mission is to cultivate a culture of reflective teaching practice and continuing growth that results in meaningful student learning. To support this mission and the educational mission of the college we:

  • Offer professional development workshops on effective teaching practices;
  • Identify evidence-based teaching practices and advocate for teachers to adopt these practices;
  • Provide one-on-one consultations with faculty to support curricular development and revision;
  • Recognize teaching excellence through awards (President’s and Provost’s Awards for Teaching Excellence) and by inviting excellent teachers to share their strategies and classroom activities;
  • Encourage teaching innovation with Curriculum Innovation Grants.
  • Support faculty who engage in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning through workshops, and one-on-one consultations and by increasing the visibility of their work on campus.
