On behalf of the Center for Faculty Excellence, I wish to express my great admiration and deep appreciation for the outstanding leadership by our faculty and staff in making this year’s Summer Institute, Implementing the Mission, a great success. More than 70 people participated in at least one session, and the quality of the sessions was excellent. In particular, Michael Smith, Assistant Professor of History and Fellow in the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, provided skillful facilitation of the two viewings of the film Declining by Degrees, and a stimulating, well-designed workshop on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning as a capstone to the event. He also served as a co-designer of the entire institute.
