The Center for the Improvement of Teaching (CIT) is a grassroots faculty-led organization committed to collaborative work on pedagogy across all disciplines and colleges. CIT’s mission since its 1983 founding has been to help faculty foster the learning of diverse students within a dynamic urban university environment like UMass Boston, with complex institutional expectations, changing communication technologies, and evolving concepts of academic knowledge and training. CIT has used sustained reflection and scholarship to promote more effective pedagogical practice, a high standard of excellence in teaching, and an inclusive education that engages all students and promotes their academic success.
