The Center for Learning and Teaching

The Center for Learning and Teaching (CLT) supports and advances Adler University’s culture of academic excellence. It is designed to support students in becoming tomorrow’s innovative leaders by providing services that help them take their personal next steps towards scholarly excellence. The CLT also serves as a place for faculty to connect with colleagues, explore new pedagogical approaches, and dialogue on issues in teaching and learning.

Here, faculty-student forums facilitate discussion and learning outside the traditional classroom environment. The CLT supports all members of the University’s learning community and challenges them to maximize their personal and professional potential to become innovative change agents.

The Center for Learning and Teaching is staffed by a Director, an Assistant Director, Peer Consultants, and additional support personnel committed to exploring and sharing diverse approaches to learning and professional growth. The CLT offers spaces for private consultations, quiet study, and large group workshops and seminars. Whether your goal is skill-building, dialogue with peers, or you wish to learn something new, the CLT is a welcoming place ready to help you take the next step in your ongoing academic and scholarly growth.
