Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning

Informed by the success of the College of General Studies — which has been delivering outstanding interdisciplinary, general education for more than sixty years — and by the scholarship on best practices in teaching and learning, the Center for Interdisciplinary Teaching & Learning (CITL) recognizes that undergraduate students learn best when they reflect upon how and not just what they are learning, when they have excellent teachers, and when they view learning as a life-long process. CITL offers core programs that support these beliefs.

Led by Associate Dean Megan Sullivan and powered by the active support of CGS faculty, CITL offers information and opportunities aimed at those seeking to learn more about or participate in interdisciplinary or general education experiences. CITL programs serve CGS students, current and aspiring undergraduate faculty, and life-long learners, including BU alumni.
