About the CTAAR

The CTAAR (pronounced "star") has undergone two name changes in the past two decades. Originally founded as the "Teaching Excellence Center" in 1992, the office was primarily responsible for the Student Instructional Rating Survey. The center's responsibilities expanded to include instructional technologies, staff training, and enhanced classroom support and in 2004 our name changed to the "Center for the Advancement of Teaching" (CAT) to reflect the broader responsibilities. In 2007, with the addition of university assessment programs, we changed the name to the "Center for Teaching Advancement and Assessment Research". In 2016, CTAAR became part of the Division of Continuing Studies (DoCS).
