At St. Edward’s University, exceptional teaching is at the very core of our Holy Cross tradition of academic excellence. As a student, you'll benefit from an active and rigorous learning environment that is constantly refined toward a common goal — to inspire you to think, learn and grow beyond your expectations.

Highest Standards for Teaching and Learning

Established in 1991, the Center for Teaching Excellence grew from the desire to continually elevate the learning experience for students at St. Edward’s. Through the center, faculty members come together to share ideas and strategies for successful teaching. They learn practical and inventive ways to improve teaching methods and respond to the various learning needs of students.

The Center for Teaching Excellence focuses on a variety of activities designed to maximize the St. Edward’s educational experience, which include:

  • Supporting effective and innovative teaching
  • Advancing new initiatives in teaching and learning
  • Building communities of teaching and learning across disciplines and schools
  • Recognizing outstanding teachers through teaching awards

The Center for Teaching Excellence fosters a diversity of teaching and learning styles. It assists faculty in developing courses, offers resources for teachers and collaborates with professors to utilize technology in the classroom. Teachers gain creative insights for sharing their knowledge — and teaching students how to learn.
