Multicultural College Teaching and Learning (MCTL) program explores all aspects of how students learn and achieve in a college environment and how we get better at making the higher education experience more open, inclusive, accessible, and supportive. We examine topics in student development, the psychology of learning, and the roles that the staff, faculty, and community play in creating an environment conducive to success.
In this program, you will learn to apply current theory and practice related to access, persistence and student achievement to successfully address the changing needs of postsecondary education.
The teaching process in the MCTL program is intentional and life giving.
