The Center for Teaching assists graduate students and faculty with developing teaching philosophies and other application materials.


    • Consultations: Whether in the beginning or end stages of revising a teaching philosophy, graduate students and faculty can request a consultation to review their teaching philosophy with a Center staff member. The Center can also help with other "evidence of teaching effectiveness" documentation that a application might request, such as summaries of student evaluation.
    • Workshops or Workgroups: Based on availability the Center offers workshops or workgroups on creating teaching philosophies. If offered, these are listed at the beginning of the semester on our events page. If there is no event, feel free to request an individual or group consultation. Departmental workshops can also sometimes be done upon request


Graduate students can also receive assistance on application materials that are not related to teaching, such as CVs, cover letters, and research statements, through resources offered by the Graduate College including individual consultations.
