Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching

Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) Advisory Board

A faculty advisory board advises the Director on developing and implementing CELT policies and procedures, advocates for the recognition of teaching, oversees and sponsors activities related to teaching improvement, and reviews proposals submitted to CELT’s instructional grant program. Board members frequently serve as mentors or peer consultants for other faculty and lead CELT workshops. A CELT Board member is editor of the CELT Newsletter.

Board members serve terms of 3 years. The selection of new board members takes place in April. All deans, chairs, and faculty may submit nominations, or individuals may nominate themselves or another faculty member (with her/his permission). Nominations are evaluated for evidence of commitment to the philosophy and goals of CELT, evidence of teaching effectiveness, demonstrated commitment to ongoing growth as a teacher and to the scholarship of teaching, and willingness to take an active role in the work of CELT. At least four schools/divisions must be represented on the board. To nominate yourself or someone else to be an Advisory Board member, please complete the online nomination form.
