CETL Mission

The Center for Engaged Teaching and Learning (CETL) advocates a union of scholarship and instruction, grounded in the academic principles of research and focused   on supporting the success of a diverse student population in a research university context. To enable students to excel academically, we support a campus-wide culture that values, fosters, and rewards continuous improvement in teaching and learning.

The CETL establishes a firm foundation in support of teaching and learning through the following goals to:

  • Foster an enduring commitment to an evidence-based approach to improving student learning at course, program and institutional levels;
  • Facilitate teaching and learning-focused professional development that supports diverse pedagogical approaches and instructional experience;
  • Support all instructors in engaging UC Merced's diverse student population in a research university education;
  • Provide pedagogical support for online and hybrid classes, as well as teaching with new technologies;
  • Collaborate with units across the university to improve student learning.
