The Center at Midway for Teaching Excellence and Innovation supports student success by engaging all Midway University faculty in a scholarly approach to teaching and fostering a culture of inclusive excellence in teaching and learning. We serve as a campus clearinghouse for information about teaching and learning resources, promoting and facilitating connections throughout the University’s teaching community.
