Center for Teaching and Learning

About Us

 Mission Statement 

The mission of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is to promote, enhance, and support inclusive teaching and innovative pedagogical practices that lead to meaningful student learning. By helping members of the CSB+ SJU community become more effective teachers, the CTL furthers the mission of the college and university and enhances the learning experiences of our students.

 Land Acknowledgement 

Both the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University occupy the original homelands of the Dakhóta and Anishinaabe peoples. We honor, respect, and acknowledge the Indigenous peoples forcibly removed from this territory, whose connection remains today. St. Benedict’s Monastery and St. John’s Abbey previously operated boarding schools for Native children. Now, students, faculty, and staff are working to repair relationships with our Native Nation neighbors.
