Welcome to the Center for Academic Excellence

The Center for Academic Excellence is the university's lead teaching and learning resource for faculty and staff.  The CAE is dedicated to growing excellence in teaching and learning and supporting faculty and student success. Our office provides workshops, courses, and resources covering a variety of pedagogical and technological topics in addition to faculty career support. The CAE Spring 2021 Schedule at a Glance contains an overview of all of our faculty development offerings and resources for the spring semester.  Our faculty champions have helped us tremendously throught the pandemic - please feel free to reach out to them for support as well. 


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.
