The Center for Teaching and Scholarly Excellence (CTSE) provides leadership for the professional development of members of the Suffolk community as teacher-
scholars, administrators, mentors and leaders in three inter-connected areas:
  1. Cultivating outcomes-based, student-centered learning through best practices and innovative teaching;
  2. Strategically integrating teaching, learning, and technology; and
  3. Fostering scholarly productivity and collaboration.

The CTSE will provide a supportive space to cultivate communities, conversations, and collaborations within and across disciplines and colleges that simultaneously advance individual and group professional development opportunities while increasing the success of Suffolk’s students.
