Wilton and Mary W. Parr Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence

The Wilton and Mary W. Parr Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence at Central Piedmont ​seeks to engage and inspire all faculty in collaborative professional learning and growth to support our students in achieving their goals.  

We welcome and support full-time and adjunct faculty at all career stages as they create transformational and equitable learning opportunities for our diverse community of learners. We are committed to fostering a rich and compelling community of learning excellence focused on the holistic needs of all those who teach.

Central Piedmont's Parr Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence is responsible for the holistic development of Central Piedmont faculty and teaching staff in the areas of pedagogical content knowledge, feedback and assessment, inclusive pedagogy, curriculum alignment, classroom climate, instructional strategies, and faculty engagement. We also share the college's values and strategic goals to support faculty in serving as champions of students, catalysts for opportunity, and exceptional providers of learning experiences.

The Parr Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence has been featured in the 2020 Achieving the Dream (AtD) Teaching and Learning Toolkit. Read the AtD Toolkit Features Parr Center news article to learn more.
