Center for Teaching Excellence

Professor with Globe


The Center for Teaching Excellence inspires excellence and innovation in teaching. We create and provide programming, resources, and opportunities that foster innovative and effective pedagogical practices among all who teach at USC.

If you would like to support the efforts of the Center for Teaching Excellence, you can Make Your Gift On-line. USC employees may give through the Family Fund. Gifts will support the programs and activities of the Center including but not limited to the following purposes:

  • Build the Center's capacity to sponsor engaging events that support continuous improvement in teaching practices.
  • Engage faculty in specific projects through CTE communities of practice in order to enhance our culture of teaching and learning.
  • Provide individual faculty members with personal assistance and resources to support all aspects of teaching and learning.

Funds are to be administered at the discretion of the Faculty Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
