CTL’s mission is to provide opportunities, leadership and support for faculty development in their scholarly and professional work. The long term aim is to engage these agents of change, both individually and in community, in transforming Kent State University's environments for learning into spaces where all students succeed.
The Center's four main areas of service are to:
• Connect, network, and support continuity in opportunities for professional and staff development.
• Communicate opportunities for professional and staff development.
• Provide advocacy and support for professional development as members work with individual colleagues, committees, and groups to enhance opportunities for long and short-term growth.
• Offer expertise and consultation related to specific areas of scholarship and professional work.
The Center is designed to provide leadership and support for cultivating environments and relationships for innovative and successful learning, for building networks and communities of practice and learning, and for communicating and creating opportunities for professional and staff development.
