Welcome New Faculty Members to IU South Bend and UCET

The University Center for Excellence in Teaching (UCET) has been established to support teaching and learning on the IU South Bend campus. Our mission is to enhance faculty development and student learning through various programs and support systems. The center's team actively participates in national conferences as well as a system-wide conference. In addition, we provide workshops, individual assistance for course development, and guidance on funding possibilities for academic-related travel. Expanded information on our current programs is linked on the left. Please stop by our center to introduce yourself, and check out all the activities planned for this month.

We also have a Canvas course created especially for new faculty!
