Utah State University is Home to Excellent Teachers
We're also known for the resources we provide to help teachers create effective and supportive learning environments. The Empowering Teaching Excellence program elevates and promotes our culture of teaching excellence through events and programs that are open to all USU instructors, regardless of role statement or location.
The ETE program is designed to
- Bring together instructors from across the USU system to showcase and share best practices
- Provide training, grant, and recognition opportunities for faculty to further encourage teaching innovation and improvement.
- Put instructors in touch with helpful resources and mentors.
