2020 CETL Revitalization

In order to achieve the goals outlined in UNC’s Vision 2030 it is essential that we build a strong foundation for developing teaching excellence for all members of the teaching community.

To achieve this a new Interim Director for the CETL, Dr. Lyda McCartin, was appointed in January 2020.  Dr. McCartin convened the CETL Revitalization Team in spring 2020. This faculty team, with representation from each academic college and University Libraries, worked together in 2020 to develop the CETL’s mission and strategic direction. The team sought input from educators across campus throughout the year with the goal of having a strategic plan developed by December 1, 2020.
