Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning


About CIEL

The Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning is a working group of eleven institutions and programs that trace their roots to the best of innovative and reform practice in American higher education. We’re not easily categorized as we excel in different ways, but we’re all deeply and richly student-centered in our practice. Our commitment is to discover the best means to produce engaged life-long learners and thoughtful citizens. Constantly seeking for authentic teaching, assessment, interdisciplinary and experiential learning techniques, we’ve come together to learn from each other and maximize our impact on U.S. higher education.

Interested in what we do? Want to find out more? Contact us or come to our annual gathering.
