The Center for Equity and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CEETL) is the heart of the University’s commitment to a culture that values and rewards teaching. From our ABC's of equity-minded teaching and learning to our Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) institutes and certificates, our faculty development programming is dedicated to providing a caring environment for the campus community to engage in conversations and activities that promote social justice, equity, diversity and inclusion in teaching and learning.
