The Center for Educational Excellence (CEE) is USD’s resource for faculty development and innovation. The CEE provides the tools and resources for USD faculty to develop collaborations in pursuit of academic excellence and innovative and inclusive learning across the University.

Mission: The mission of the CEE is to support the USD community by providing integrated programs, events, and resources to promote the institution’s core values of academic excellence, knowledge, creating a diverse and inclusive community, ethical conduct, and compassionate service.

Vision: The CEE strives to enhance the quality of learning, teaching, scholarship, and service at USD by facilitating faculty growth and by being an institutional change agent supporting the transformation of the university into an inclusive community of learners.

At the CEE we promote exploration of pedagogical and curricular advancements that can improve the student learning experience. Units from all over the campus collaborate with the CEE to create interdisciplinary workshops, learning communities, and other development opportunities that engage our teaching community.

Our programming is open to all members of the USD community.  We also have School of Business and School of Education and Leadership Sciences, and Adjunct Faculty Liaisons who help to create programming to engage these faculty groups.  Please let us know if you have any programming ideas!
