Office of Teaching and Learning
We nurture mutual respect, equity, and empathy within our student groups. We focus
on supporting students’ academic, professional, and personal goals for learning
We remain up-to-date in our respective disciplines and work toward becoming a scholar
of our own pedagogy. We engage in faculty development to enhance our teaching praxis.
We are enthusiastic about our subject area and promote a love of learning through
our approach to teaching.
We use learner-centered approaches to teaching by meeting our students where they
are and helping them to develop as knowers.
We create learning environments that are highly engaging and that promote the authentic
application of concepts.
We promote inquiry, discovery, and critical thinking as a way for students to develop
more sophisticated ways of understanding knowledge.
Through our teaching practice, we nurture students’ commitment to values, lifelong
learning, and to being a positive force within our society.
