About Us

The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning (CTRL) is American University’s catalyst for inspiring, mentoring, and celebrating faculty in their roles as teachers and researchers. To fulfill this mission, CTRL collaborates with the campus community to create opportunities for faculty to re-envision and strengthen their teaching and research practices and to help prepare the next generation of faculty.
