Open campus activities for Promoting Excellence in Teaching and Learning


CETL is in the process of planning open campus activities. CETL believes that students and staff are the heart of the UW-Superior campus. Professional and personal development provides the context, and all staff are teachers AND learners in the process. Campus activities are open to all members of the campus and will incorporate our collaborative work in supporting students towards retention and graduation.
