Dedicated to enhancing student learning.
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 (CSU, Chico’s Strategic Priority 1). We do this by supporting faculty in their teaching, scholarship, and service. Our support takes two basic forms. First, we provide support and recognition for individual faculty throughout their careers. Second, we provide support and recognition for programs, departments, and colleges to meet evolving institutional priorities.
CELT is your campus teaching and resource center -- come and tell us what we can do for you!
