Hazen Center for Teaching Excellence

You are here

The Hazen Center for Teaching Excellence (HCTE) opened in the fall of 2012 through an anonymous gift to support teaching excellence at KWU.  The HCTE is named after Arch and E. B. Hazen. 

The mission of the HCTE is to provide programs, academic resources, mentoring, grant writing, and faculty development as a means of improving and maintaining teaching excellence as it relates to student learning.  The Center also provides a location for faculty collaboration in teaching effectiveness as well as promoting activities which increase general faculty welfare and collegiality.  In addition, the HCTE provides opportunities for faculty to explore teaching “best practices” and to effectively utilize existing faculty expertise.

The HCTE is located in room 213 of Peters Science Hall and is fully equipped with tools for both individual and group learning and development. 

The Director of the HCTE is Frank Roth, and he can be reached at 785-827-5541, ext. 2119 or froth@kwu.edu.   For giving opportunities to the HCTE, please contact Frank Roth at the above contacts or Bill Grevas at 785-827-5541x1121 or bill.grevas@kwu.edu.
