Teaching Excellence Program

The College of Arts and Sciences’s (CAS) Teaching Excellence Program (TEP) provides resources to faculty members to support them in strengthening and expanding their teaching expertise, with the goal of best serving the needs of Lewis & Clark’s undergraduates. Thanks to a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the program now permanently exists under the College of Arts and Sciences’s Dean of the College

TEP offers a number of resources and events designed to help disseminate best practices in pedagogy. The program is designed not only to assist professors, but also to bring faculty together – across all disciplines and throughout their careers – to discuss and apply teaching techniques that are engaging, inclusive, and innovative. By offering workshops, distinguished speakers, and hosting regular events, TEP dovetails with the efforts of other campus programs to support faculty and staff development.
