Portland State University. Center for Academic Excellence, College teaching -- Assessment, Higher education -- Administration, Academic achievement


Since its inception in 1994, the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) has provided a comprehensive array of cross-disciplinary and discipline-specific development activities in support of the educational function of the university. The Center has a dual mission of faculty development in teaching, learning, and assessment and in the development of community-university partnerships. Th e Center is a place of innovation, a gathering place for idea generation and testing, and a place where faculty may turn for individual consultation and professional advice. Increasingly, CAE supports faculty interested in community-engaged research.

We are proud to present the 2008-2009 Annual Report of the work completed by CAE. This is our first report since 2002-2003. Our intention is to continue this regular practice of summarizing our recent accomplishments. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to review our work and we welcome your feedback.

Thank you for your interest, your participation in CAE activities, and your continued support. Working together we are making a difference.
