CIRTL at Drexel

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (CIRTL) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded center committed to advancing the teaching of STEM disciplines in higher education. CIRTL aims to enhance the STEM learning of all college students in an effort to increase both diversity in STEM fields and STEM literacy nationwide.

CIRTL Network

In collaboration with Drexel's Center for the Advancement of STEM Teaching and Learning Excellence (CASTLE), the Graduate College is a member of the CIRTL network, which is comprised of more than 42 research universities across the United States. This network connects leading universities engaged in teaching and learning, faculty preparation and teaching-as-research activities.


Through Drexel's CIRTL membership, STEM graduate students may create a CIRTL Network Account online and take advantage of CIRTL programs, workshops, webinars and more. In addition to the national network offerings, Drexel will host programs built around CIRTL's core ideas: learning-through-diversity, teaching-as-research and learning communities.
