CUTLA missions and goals.

Mission Statement

The Center for University Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (CUTLA) facilitates the efforts of faculty, academic programs, and colleges to develop and sustain practices that promote the highest quality of teaching and learning at the University of West Florida. CUTLA provides workshops and other support for the full range of faculty professional development needs. CUTLA informs and advocates for the use of evidence-based teaching practices, provides workshops and facilitates mentoring for professional and career issues, consults with faculty on scholarship (publication and grant writing), and provides training in the skills required for the assessment of student learning. CUTLA also contributes to initiatives directed at organizational development and institutional effectiveness.



To accomplish this mission, CUTLA identifies the following three goals:

  • Provide a balanced mix of workshops and consultations for faculty development.
  • Provide electronic access to professional development resources on teaching, learning, assessment, and professional career topics.
  • Support institutional effectiveness by proposing, implementing, and contributing to initiatives that promote the development and maintenance of a mature culture of assessment.
