Welcome to the Center for Academic Excellence

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.
