About Us

The Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning (CITL) is focused on excellence in teaching and learning in all formats; it is a hub of innovation and hands-on support for those who want to discuss and work with new trends, models, projects, and resources. Central to our modern mission is strengthening the linkages between CITL and colleges, programs, and units across the University that are integral to the teaching and learning missions of the university. Through our programs and activities, colleagues across the university can share ideas and expertise with one another, learn of new developments in the scholarship of teaching and learning, and strengthen their skills and strategies.

Also at the heart of all our efforts is a core value of enriching —and transforming—the intellectual growth and skill acquisition of our students including those in online and off-campus degree and certificate programs. We remain committed to providing academic units with a variety of services focused on off-campus/online programs and the students served through these programs. This includes program development and coordination, market research, student recruitment, and full registration services, along with a wide range of tools designed to encourage student learning success.
