The Office of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Utah is delighted to announce the naming of the Martha Bradley Evans Center for Teaching Excellence.
The Center will continue to serve as a hub for faculty development and success as well as expand its offerings as an innovative nexus for 21st-century instructional practices. The Center has been redesigned in recent months and will welcome a new director through an ongoing, national search. The CTE will contribute to institutional efforts on faculty success as a key driver of student success, persistence, and completion—from faculty fellows’ programs to active learning initiatives, a New Faculty Orientation program, Faculty Learning Communities, Future Faculty programs for graduate students, a Utah Teaching Academy, and more!
