Marshall Unversity's Center for Teaching & Learning
Welcome to the CTL!
The mission of the Center for Teaching and Learning is to promote a campus culture at Marshall University that values pedagogical, disciplinary, and program-based inquiry in support of student learning.

The Center houses three units: the Faculty Development Office, the Writing across the Curriculum Program, and the Service Learning Program.

The Office of Academic Affairs established the Center for Teaching Excellence in the fall of 1999. In 2006 the name of the Center was changed to the Center for Teaching and Learning in order to reflect a broadening mission and a fuller understanding of the crucial interdependence between effective teaching and successful learning. The Center is located in Old Main 109.
What makes up the Center for Teaching & Learning?

The Faculty Development Office provides professional development and recognition for new and experienced faculty members through workshops, conferences, mentoring, faculty awards, and grant opportunities.

The MU Service Learning Program assists faculty, students, and community partners in course-specific collaborations that connect learning objectives to public service and civic engagement.
Writing Across the Curriculum
The Writing Across the Curriculum Program supports faculty who wish to develop pedagogies that focus on writing as a means of learning.
