Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice are ongoing opportunities for learning and engagement.

In Fall 2022, we are focusing on the Caring Campus Behavioral Commitments.

Faculty Learning Opportunities

All College Week happens the week before the start of the semester. It is a time for faculty, staff, and administrators to engage in meaningful Professional Development aimed at major campus initiatives like the Anti-Racism plan, Guided Pathways, and Caring Campus.


In the TEACH Center podcast we discuss hot topics in teaching and learning. We interview educators about what they are doing in their fields, and we talk to learners about what inspires them.


See all the awesome learning opportunities for faculty this semester.

TEACH Coach Program

TEACH Coach Associate Mentoring Program pairs associate faculty members with a non-evaluative faculty mentor for personalized instructional mentoring and career coaching.


Are you looking for fresh eyes, new ideas, or just someone to show you how to “do” something? Then, make an appointment to meet with Whitney or Michelle!
