About the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

The Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CETL) organizes professional development activities for faculty throughout Minnesota State University, Mankato. "Talking About Teaching" has been our motto since CETL was established in the fall of 2002 and it remains true today. Our programming is designed to help you improve student engagement, design more organized courses, create better student learning outcomes, and enhance your teaching career. Participants in our various faculty groups can find support and encouragement while discussing, improving, and developing innovative teaching strategies.

CETL's mission is to support faculty members’ personal growth in ways that advance social justice and racial equity. We help faculty develop effective teaching practices and support their ongoing professional development.
