Merck Center for Teaching

Our mission is to nurture and empower faculty in their pursuit of professional growth and institutional distinction.

As such, the center encourages teachers to explore and implement pedagogical practices that promote transformative learning experiences that equip students for the journey of life. With an eye on where we’ve come from and one on where we might yet go, we partner with faculty, students, and the extended St. George's learning community to broaden our understanding of effective teaching and to cultivate an environment of reflective practice.
