Faculty Affairs Support Three Areas for Faculty Development
CEETL: Teaching Support
Within the Office of Faculty Affairs & Professional Development, the Center for Equity and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CEETL) is the heart connecting all SF State faculty with professional development opportunities to promote equity-minded teaching & learning in support of student success.
We cultivate an inclusive and welcoming faculty culture and a consciously intersectional and anti-racist community, with an intentional goal of mirroring faculty diversity to student diversity.
