Institute for Faculty Excellence

The Institute for Faculty Excellence provides a variety of resources designed to promote student learning and improve instruction. One of the major responsibilities of the IFEX is to provide assistance to all Academic Affairs departments and programs through the functions of the Curriculum Design Studio (CDS); the Learning Communities Coordinator; and The Center for Learning Effectiveness, Assessment, and Research (CLEAR).

IFEX is available to faculty for individual help with outcomes assessment, curriculum design, establishing learning communities, building faculty portfolios and other professional development opportunities.
