Books - Faculty Center

The faculty center houses books and periodicals on topics relevant to teaching such as assessment, critical thinking, teaching portfolios, service learning, active learning and more. If you are cleaning out your office and have any books that fit our collection, your donation is welcome! Come browse our collections and feel free to sign out any of the books available (sign books out with the binderlist of titles shelved alongside the books). 

If you published a book and have an extra copy for us, we will gladly include it in the Faculty Center library. Please contact the Faculty Center coordinator, so that the library collection files can be updated.

The following books are available in the Faculty Center library. For a complete list of all books that allows you to search for titles or authors, open this spreadsheet.
