Mission of the Faculty Center for Teaching

The Faculty Center for Teaching seeks to cultivate on our campus a shared culture of reflection about teaching that encourages and supports meaningful experimentation. Faculty members at all career stages are essential to creating this culture as well as partnerships with staff across campus who are invested in student learning. Because reflecting on our teaching is richest in an environment that fosters an exchange of perspectives, our programs aim to provide a wide range of opportunities for collaboration among colleagues both within and across disciplines. To accomplish our mission, we offer:

  • a two-year orientation program for new faculty members
  • a peer partner program matching new faculty members with current faculty members
  • learning communities in which groups of faculty collaborate in investigating a topic of interest in their teaching
  • workshops and programs on specific teaching questions
  • resources on pedagogy, student learning, and academic leadership (in Trexler Library and on our website)
  • summer grants for faculty to develop new approaches to their teaching funds to attend conferences related to teaching
