  • Advocating for sufficient resource allocation for teaching and learning operations on each campus
  • Building and disseminating standards of excellence for faculty development
  • Mentoring and supporting new CUNY CTLs and their leaders
  • Producing research and scholarship about our collective endeavors
  • Promoting best practices and models of SOTL
  • Endorsing good models for the assessment of teaching and student learning
