Caltech attracts the brightest and most creative minds in the world to populate its faculty, research and administrative staffs, and student body.
The Caltech Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach (CTLO), formally started in August 2012 and reporting to the Office of the Provost, supports and connects university teaching and learning with PreK-12 and public educational outreach under a unified umbrella. In this way, Caltech faculty can easily access services related to teaching a wide variety of audiences.
Caltech students, both graduate and undergraduate, also gain experience designing, delivering, and assessing educational offerings in a variety of settings. These experiences contribute to multi-disciplinary knowledge, communication, mindset as early career role models and mentors, and future success in STEM-related fields.
Caltech's Vision is for our teaching and educational excellence to parallel our renowned research excellence. The CTLO's Mission is to work toward this vision by supporting instruction, enhancing learning, and facilitating educational outreach.
