Dear Colleagues,

We at CTE all have a lot to be grateful for as we approach the season of holidays, but this thankfulness is also part of our every day. From our house at 20 Chatham to your classrooms, offices, and homes —

Thank you

for being committed to student learning. 

for bringing your ideas and energy to CTE.

for serving as peer leaders.

for taking risks in your teaching.

for reflecting on your own learning.

for being dedicated teacher-scholars. 

Perhaps most importantly, thank you for walking alongside one another and helping us all to learners. 

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving break,

Laurel, Steve, Erin, Christina, Nikki, and Kiara

Founded in 1989 as a faculty initiative, the Center for Teaching Excellence helps faculty and graduate student teaching assistants excel as teacher-scholars deeply invested in their students’ learning. We believe that excellent teaching is an art that grows through scholarship, practice, reflection, and collaboration. Our approach at CTE is a personal one. We promote excellence in teaching by getting to know our faculty and TAs, learning from them, fostering their leadership, and bringing people together from across the University.
