Center for Teaching Excellence

Begun with the support of the Provost’s Office and a Funds for Excellence grant from the Virginia State Council of Higher Education in 1990, the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) is now a pan-University center for collegial community and committed conversation about teaching at all levels and in all academic disciplines. CTE offers a number of services and resource materials designed to enhance the teaching abilities and professional development of faculty and teaching assistants at the University of Virginia. CTE also administers several special programs, recognizes the skills and accomplishments of faculty, and aids in the development of courses.
