Welcome to TLAC!

The Department of Teaching, Learning and Culture (TLAC) encompasses students, faculty and staff whose efforts and interests center on the many different aspects of academics, teaching and classroom education. TLAC’s mission is to create experiences that advance teaching, research and service through the application of knowledge in the preparation and development of quality educators; placing high value on collaboration, diversity, critical thinking, creativity, democratic governance and global leadership.

What our students are saying...


One of things that I enjoy the most about TLAC is the opportunity to "stretch" one's views on multicultural approaches to education through purposeful and practical lectures, engaging readings, interactive activities, and the ongoing collaboration with diverse professionals.
