Our Goals and Approach


The University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) empowers people to learn. Case Western Reserve University has a long tradition of  innovation and excellence in teaching. A leader in discovery of new knowledge through scholarship, the university strives to develop students with skills and attitudes that support a lifetime of discovery and learning. At UCITE, we believe this is fostered when both students and faculty understand and practice the “scholarship of teaching” and the “teaching in scholarship.”


  • develop and maintain resources for faculty to enhance student learning at CWRU.
  • provide grants and fellowships for faculty projects that enhance student learning.
  • encourage growth of a campus culture that highly values teaching and scholarship.
