Our mission to advance learning and teaching at Northwestern requires a continued campus-wide commitment from our world-class faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates.
We invite all to join the Searle Center community to help maintain high-quality education at Northwestern University.
Our programs encourage early-career and advanced faculty to think critically about pedagogy and their role as educators. We create opportunities for faculty to connect with and learn from peers across the university.
Grads & Postdocs
We invite new and advanced graduate students and postdocs to meet, discuss, and learn together to improve their teaching skills.
Book of the Quarter
Whistling Vivaldi by Claude M. Steele, Northwestern’s “One Book” selection, raises serious questions for educators and students. How do our social identities influence the way we teach? The way we learn? Rethinking how we give feedback, how we foster trust and respect, and how we acknowledge student frustrations offers a powerful means for enhancing students’ sense of belonging and achievement.
