St. Edward's University thrives due to a vibrant, inclusive teaching community. The Center for Teaching Excellence and the Instructional Technology Department host workshops, offer consultations, and provide resources to help faculty develop and teach courses, whether the courses are face-to-face or online, undergraduate or graduate. Please review the resources below:
- Teaching Forum Workplace Group for faculty to support each other in their teaching. (Request to join.)

University Program Review
St. Edward’s University’s University Program Review (UPR) is a continuous improvement process required by the university’s SACS-COC regional accreditor. SACS-COC expects that the university is regularly undertaking a holistic review of how programs, both academic and non-academic, align with broader institutional goals. St. Edward’s university program review will analyze each program’s alignment to mission, market, and margin. Initially, the program review’s focus for academic programs will be on majors, although minors will be included as supplemental information.
Faculty Development Resources
All contracted faculty are members of the Faculty Collegium. The collegium generally meets once a semester and is a forum for faculty to be informed of developments on campus and for discussion of issues of interest or concern. Most faculty business is conducted by the Faculty Senate. The senate is elected, with representation from each School, undergraduate and graduate, and the Library, as well as some members elected at large.
