Our Mission

The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) at Concordia University develops faculty for excellence in teaching in the face-to-face and blended learning environments, including the meaningful connection between faith and learning, to support Concordia’s mission of Christ centered Lutheran higher education. CELT encourages self-reflective, scholarly teaching among Concordia faculty through consultation, collaboration, and community.
