CITI will lead and support innovative teaching that transforms learning for the success of 21st century students in our local, regional, national and global college campus communities. Woven within and at the heart of the center’s programming and services is an emphasis on social justice and equity.
CITI will promote the highest quality education for students by fostering a culture of innovation, transformation, creativity, collaboration, and continuous improvement in teaching and learning. We provide programs and services for all instructional personnel (tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure, clinical, adjunct, staff, and teaching assistant) that are grounded in research and best practices in higher education instruction. By partnering with faculty, staff and administrators, we can collaboratively build a forward-thinking liberal education experience that promotes the university’s five tenets of social justice and the disciplines. In addition, a liberal education experience immersed in 21st-century digital learning environments provides a foundation and springboard for our students that assists in their becoming leaders and visionaries who positively impact society.
