Founded in 2006, Tufts University's Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT) is a division of the Office of the Provost and a central resource for all schools on our four campuses. Tufts' dual mission as a university is teaching and scholarship. At Tufts, we pride ourselves on valuing both. Even as we advance our research and scholarship, we strive for excellence in teaching and renew ourselves as educators in light of new evidence of how students learn, rapid developments in the fields we teach, changing demographics of our students, and new technologies.

MISSION STATEMENT: CELT collaborates with faculty, departments and schools to advance a culture of learner-centered, critically reflective teaching and leadership rooted in evidence and equity.

VISION STATEMENT: We aspire to influence and advance the Tufts educational mission by creating an environment that nurtures faculty growth, values the student as a whole person, and promotes innovative and equitable learner-centered practices.
