About CEL

Mission

The Center for Engaged Learning (CEL) exists primarily to facilitate the involvement of faculty in a dialogue regarding the art and science of university teaching. All CEL activities, events, and content are designed to: 

  • Encourage discussion and facilitate an exchange of accrued wisdom concerning issues of teaching and learning.
  • Disseminate information, develop projects, and conduct inquiries that enhance the knowledge and practice of university instruction.
  • Stimulate and enable the development of innovative teaching strategies and emerging technologies.
  • Provide new faculty with information and support as part of their orientation to the university.
  • Promote and facilitate awareness of and adaptation to differences in faculty and student teaching and learning styles.
  • Solicit and respond to the needs, interests and concerns of the faculty on issues related to college-level teaching and learning.
  • Affirm the institution's commitment to teaching excellence.

The CEL has instructional support as its focus. For questions and additional information, please contact us by calling 610-683-1518 and
