The Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) of the California State University System is devoted to promoting the highest standards of university teaching and to fostering faculty professional growth and collaboration throughout the California State University system. The ITL broadly defines faculty professional growth to encompass the multiple roles of faculty relating to teaching, research, and service. We welcome ITL director Dr. Emily Magruder to the CSU Symposium/PolyTeach joint conference.
