About The Teaching Commons

Mission of the Carthage College Teaching Commons

The Teaching Commons supports the instrumental role of the faculty in establishing a vibrant intellectual culture essential to the mission of the College.

To this end, the Commons provides a coordinated set of activities informed by the interests of the individual faculty member, and of the larger community. The Commons provides a space in which faculty share ideas and expertise, reflect upon our vocation as teacher-scholars, and deepen our collective understanding of the intellectual growth of both student and teacher. The Commons strives to support faculty throughout their careers, recognizing that the needs and interests of individual teacher-scholars change over time.
