About Us

Our Mission

The Faculty Center for Ignatian Pedagogy encourages excellence in teaching by facilitating the role of faculty in the formation of the student as a whole person.  The Center promotes the implementation of creative teaching strategies that reflect the intellectual, social and spiritual context of today's students.

We strive to:

  • Promote the principles of teaching that encourage transformative education;
  • Promote, facilitate and formally recognize teaching excellence to all faculty;
  • Assist academic, academic-support, and student-development units with creating, implementing and evaluating ongoing assessment;
  • Encourage effective use of new technologies in teaching and learning.
