Mission

The CTE supports Xavier faculty in creating rich, collaborative learning environments that challenge our students intellectually, morally, and spiritually. The Center promotes effective teaching that is reflective, engaging, creative, and informed by both pedagogical and disciplinary knowledge.

In supporting this mission, the CTE:

  • cultivates environments and relationships to build networks and communities of learning and scholarship;
  • provides programs and resources designed to promote pedagogical methods informed by research on teaching and learning;
  • inspires faculty to reflect on their work as well as to share and learn from the experience, diversity, and expertise of their colleagues;
  • supports the development of our students as engaged scholars and citizens.
