Teaching Students

Center for Teaching Excellence


The CTE is an innovative and supportive destination for all faculty. We provide programs, services, resources, and networking for all instructors to advance teaching on campus and contribute to a culture of continued improvement and peer-to-peer learning and collaboration.

We facilitate programs and opportunities for instructors to share in a persistent commitment to growth as teachers. As our students change, as educational technologies change, as learning science evolves…we should adapt as well. The CTE will be responsive to faculty needs in the moment, as well as responsive to institutional goals and priorities.

We are happy to have you here. We welcome your input, feedback and participation. Contact us cte@newhaven.edu!
