The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) provides and coordinates professional development activities for our faculty and staff across our campus. Professional development happens in a variety of ways on our campus and beyond.

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 Spring 2019 Professional Development Schedule contains registration links, dates/times, and facilitator information for all of our workshops and special events.
