You are here


Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning!

(Located in Conwell Hall 2nd Floor)

The Center for Teaching and Learning has as its principal mission the improvement of teaching and learning across all disciplines. CTL creates opportunities for university faculty to strengthen teaching efforts through research-based methodologies, professional development experiences, advanced studies and assessment practices that lead to improved teaching and student learning. We operate as part of the University’s Title III Grant. Title III is a federal government assistance program given to historically Black colleges and Universities. Title III assures equity in educational opportunities for all students. CTL works in conjunction with the Title III office to assure that university faculty are equipped with the tools and resources needed to enrich their teaching in order to increase student learning.

All expenditures submitted by the Center to the Title III office must be allowable under federal guidelines.
