Faculty Liaisons & Affiliates

Faculty Liaisons

The Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence recognizes faculty members who wish to serve as a communication bridge between their home departments/schools and ATLE. We urge all departments/schools to nominate a Faculty Liaison, who would be asked to fulfill the following commitments:

  • Join the ATLE listserv and forward relevant announcements to colleagues
  • Keep ATLE apprised of any department-specific needs with which ATLE can assist
  • Review applications for the annual TA Awards (participation is voluntary)

The total commitment for the year is only a few hours, and this service to the University is recognized by a certificate from ATLE at the conclusion of the academic year.
