What we do


The Center for Teaching & Learning is faculty-led, faculty-driven, faculty owned and is committed to the continual professional learning and growth of educators.  The CTL supports a culture in which all full-time and part-time faculty are empowered to share their expertise, inspire and cultivate a community of learners in service to student success.


The Center for Teaching and Learning supports, promotes, and enhances teaching effectiveness by providing relevant, equitable, and innovative professional learning in accordance with the college’s values and guiding teaching principles, and in so doing, fosters inclusive faculty engagement and collegiality.
