We support faculty, staff, and administrators and serve as liaisons with internal external constituents.

We collaborate with the institution on projects including:

  • reaccreditation
  • strategic planning
  • project management
  • policy development
  • grant support
  • faculty professional development

We encourage instructional innovation at all levels, from individual adoption of new instructional technologies and course design and assessment principles to the development of cutting-edge instructional approaches that reach beyond individual classrooms.

Our strategic goal is to facilitate faculty and staff learning networks, based on a learning community model, around shared challenges, harnessing the collective intelligence of network members to create change and find solutions to problems.
