CTI strives to sustain inclusive learning environments where students feel a sense of belongingness and can thrive.

CTI supports instructors in creating and sustaining student-centered teaching practices by grounding our efforts in the research on learning and best practices in teaching. Five key synergistic and often interdependent domains guide our resources and services: innovation, inclusive teaching, assessment, evidence-based learning strategies, and instructional technology.

Diversity Workshops & Institutes

Faculty Institute for Diversity

The Faculty Institute for Diversity is an opportunity for instructors to explore diversity among students, teaching practices, and course design for greater inclusion.

Inclusive Teaching Institute

The Inclusive Teaching Institute is a two-day retreat for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars to explore diversity and inclusion in teaching and learning. As a participant, you will identify strategies to increase inclusion and accessibility, boost student engagement, foster belongingness, and design an action plan for future teaching.
