The mission of the Office of Critical Thinking Initiatives is to enhance critical thinking among students. The way the office goes about “challenging students to think better” is by proving support for faculty committed to fostering better thinking skills in their students. Through generous support from the Office of the Provost, the office sponsors the following initiatives.
Faculty Fellows Program
The Faculty Fellows Program supports individual faculty members as they adopt the AAC&U Critical Thinking VALUE Rubric for use within their academic discipline.
Discipline – Focused Projects
The Critical Thinking Discipline-Focused Projects furthers supports academic disciplines in their efforts to modify upper-division curriculum so as to better prepare students to think critically.
