Welcome to the Center for Academic Innovation

The Center for Academic Innovation provides resources and services for faculty that reinforce Western Oregon University's core mission as a teaching institution and bolster its commitment to serve evolving educational needs of our students and region.

WOU faculty and staff are invited to collaborate with the Center to foster a sense of community that stimulates dialogue and reflection about excellence in teaching, nurtures a commitment to student access and success, supports the scholarship of teaching and learning, and promotes policies to support and reward innovative, high quality teaching and learning experiences.
