Mission

Our Mission

CETL’s mission strengthens the College’s commitment to its community of learners. The Center aims to provide ongoing and comprehensive opportunities for growth and development of the faculty and staff in their efforts to promote successful student experiences at RCC. Toward that end, CETL will discover, share and implement best practices in higher education.

Our Vision

RCC envisions a Center that will promote and support the faculty and staff in their roles as teachers, scholars and members of the College community. The Center is grounded in the belief that ongoing professional development fosters a rich environment on campus and in the classroom and that teaching and learning occurs through contact with the College’s community members. By stimulating inquiry, generating information, diversifying the design and delivery of instruction, and creating opportunities to share ideas, information and resources, CETL seeks to create a culture of excellence and an environment for interactive teaching and learning.

CETL benefits many people on the RCC campus; please let us know your ideas.
