Teaching Engagement Program (TEP): TEP supports teachers across rank and discipline, building an imaginative, resourceful, and connected campus-wide teaching culture. We create occasions for faculty to develop and refresh their pedagogy in dialogue with one another, and to engage with campus, national, and scholarly conversations about excellence in higher education. TEP promotes research-led teaching that activates students’ commitment to inquiry and brings faculty expertise to life.
