The Center for Teaching and Learning promotes student learning by supporting and strengthening the UW teaching community.

The CTL is committed to:
- A responsive stance to change, trends, and emerging needs
- Lifelong learning and learning beyond the classroom
- Diversity pedagogies
- Technologies that advance teaching and learning
- A culture of experimentation
- Sustainable models
- Integration of teaching, learning, and research
- Individual and peer-to-peer teaching and learning practices
The CTL fosters a visible, active, cohesive network of people from across the university focused on and promoting an institutional teaching culture.
