CTL Mission

The mission of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is to provide learning-centered resources and services for faculty and students that promote teaching excellence and advance student learning at Parker University. The CTL advances a learning-centered vision of education and fosters a climate that encourages faculty to be reflective and collaborative practitioners, scholars in teaching and learning, and advocates of academic initiatives supporting educational excellence. Through student-centered strategies, the CTL equips students with learning resources and skills designed to promote academic independence and a passion for lifelong learning.
