Center for Faculty Excellence
The Center for Faculty Excellence is the University’s lead resource for teaching and learning support for faculty, staff, and graduate students. The CFE provides professional development workshops, consultations, web resources, learning communities, and more—all designed to help those involved in teaching to create an engaged and articulate learning experience for all BGSU students.

- Articulate clear and challenging expectations for students
- Develop and use pedagogical strategies that engage students in learning and academic success
- Create supportive environments for students both inside and outside the classroom
- Develop, use, and analyze assessment methods and strategies that help increase student academic performance
