On July 1, 2008, Cornell launched the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE). It encompasses three of the units of the former Center for Learning and Teaching: the International Teaching Assistant Program, the Teaching Assistant Program, and Faculty Program.
The Center for Teaching Excellence is committed to the advancement of teaching and learning at Cornell University. We act as a resource for the academic community by offering a wide array of research-based programs and services that support innovative teaching and reflective practice. We encourage instructional practices that focus on student learning and develop critical thinking skills. We serve as a catalyst for a university-wide dialogue that fosters a shared vision of teaching excellence at Cornell and advances scholarly activities related to teaching and learning.
