The Center for Academic Excellence is the university's lead teaching and learning resource for faculty, staff, and students. It was formed by combining the staff and resources from Learning Technology Services and Faculty and Academic Development into a single, comprehensive center dedicated to growing excellence in teaching and learning and supporting faculty and student success.
Our office provides several workshops for faculty and staff covering a variety of pedagogical and technological topics, including teaching and learning, teaching and learning with technology, faculty career support, global and civic engagement, the office of research, new faculty seminar series, and Department Chair series. The CAE Fall 2020 Professional Development Schedule contains registration links, dates/times, and facilitator information for all of our workshops and special events.
The Center for Academic Excellence, along with the Inclusive Excellence Team, stands in support of those denouncing the racist policies and practices that have led to systemic injustice and significant racial inequities for generations in our country. With the understanding that teaching cannot be excellent if it is not inclusive, we are committed to programming that examines bias, racism, and privilege in our educational community; seeks to understand the identities and lived experiences of our students and faculty; and promotes inclusive teaching practices for the betterment of all students and for a more just world.
