Mission Statement

TLC_main_bannerThe goal of the Center is to promote excellence in teaching and research by facilitating teaching and learning initiatives across the campus. To achieve this goal the Center will build on the knowledge and expertise of the SUNY New Paltz faculty and the instructional support staff. The Center seeks to create a dynamic environment that initiates and sustains a dialogue among faculty that strengthens the connections between teaching and learning in and across academic disciplines; to support the collaborative initiatives of faculty to explore and develop innovative pedagogies and new curricula; and to encourage professional development activities that contribute to pedagogical knowledge, instructional development, and research in teaching and learning.
