An Emphasis On The Undergraduate
Centre College is consistently ranked among the national leaders in undergraduate education. Centre’s president, Dr. John A. Roush, says the rankings are a testament to the fact that Centre is a place “where great teaching is prized.”
“Our approach to education is intensely personal and deeply engaging,” he adds. “Centre faculty consistently go above and beyond to offer a truly transformative experience for our young men and women.”
Dr. Stephanie Fabritius, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the College agrees.
“Centre College places a high value on excellence in teaching,” she says, “and Centre professors take this charge very seriously. Not only do our faculty engage in discussions to explore new and engaging teaching methods and attend workshops and conferences on teaching, they also frequently take the risk to experiment with new ideas.
“Our faculty also bring their own scholarship into the classroom,” she continues. “In the process, they expand the arena of their teaching space to engage with students in activities such as collaborative or guided research, community-based learning, internships, study-abroad, and smaller group theory and art camps.”
