Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Center for Excellence in Teaching and LearningOur goal is to promote excellence in both teaching and learning through a range of programs for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students.

CETL offers College faculty a series of workshops, a consulting service, a mini-grant program, and a repository of resources about designing, teaching, and evaluating courses.

Our program provides graduate students in the College with resources to support their work as classroom TAs, laboratory TAs, and instructors. Graduate students are also welcome to make use of services that support their own learning.

CETL supports undergraduate students in the College with services that promote academic success, including course-specific collaborative workshops and study groups, study skills support, a study skills course, and disability support.

This program will bring students with disabilities and their families together with College services to cultivate supportive relationships and encourage self-advocacy skills, which in turn will ease the transition from previous educational environments to the UR. Students and parents will attend workshops and tours facilitated by CETL access coordinators and study skills consultants, accompanied by CETL student mentors. Learn more >
