Dedicated to Enhancing Student Learning 

Welcome...CSU, Chico’s Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) is one of 23 faculty development centers in the California State University system. Created in the fall of 1994, CELT’s mission is to enhance student learning outcomes.

CELT is your campus teaching and resource center—come and tell us what we can do for you!—Kate McCarthy and the CELT Advisory Board

Learning Catalyst Fellow Nominations Now Available!

The CELT Learning Catalyst Fellows are instructional faculty and instructional staff who “catalyze”—stimulate, promote, motivate, encourage—student learning and are willing to talk about how.

CELT will recognize a maximum of one Learning Catalyst Fellow from each of the seven Academic Colleges each year. Note: Colleges are not limited in the number of nominations and in fact are encouraged to support all nominations.  Fellows will develop a college-based project to share their strategies and techniques with colleagues, and will present results at the annual CELT Conference. Read about last year’s Fellows HERE.

Nomination Letters due Friday, May 15 at 5 PM

View full call HERE

Letters may be submitted as a hard copy at MLIB 458 or electronically to CELT@csuchico.edu.
