The Center for Teaching Excellence exists to promote and support transformational, high-quality, effective educational practices.


The University of Nebraska at Kearney includes staff and faculty who are unified in their desire to educate current and future students through quality practices. The university community shares common educational goals and encourages innovation through professional development, resources, and ongoing support. We collaborate across disciplinary areas to share transformational teaching strategies that engage students in academic content through meaningful experiences.
