Teaching is a joyful endeavor and we want to recognize the work of faculty and students to make learning exciting! Taking the time to acknowledge and honor what is working helps us build toward future successes.


Teaching and learning are processes – not destinations. The professional learning promoted by the C3 blends the efforts of members of the campus community with external resources.


Being in community with our colleagues and learning from them is the hallmark of quality professional enrichment. The C3 strives to establish and strengthen the bonds between faculty members.
