Welcome to The Alliance
The Alliance for Teaching Enrichment is an organization of faculty created to bring together those most interested in student success, quality instruction, and advancing the academic mission of the university.
The Alliance is a community of educators committed to the celebration, development, and elevation of a diverse culture of teaching at Purdue Fort Wayne and in our region. We seek to enrich teaching and learning by fostering a collaborative community to serve faculty, staff, and students dedicated to the pursuit of authentic learning. The Alliance promotes creativity, boldness, enjoyment, and growth as pathways to excellence in teaching and learning.
The values of our alliance are the following:
- Diversity and inclusion
- Meaningful work
- Mutual service and support
- Organizational Structure
Board of the Alliance for Teaching Enrichment (BOATE)
Our charge is to plan, continuously improve, budget, maintain liaison with faculty and administration, and manage the calendar.
We are composed of captains of other teams, appropriate assistant/associate vice chancellor from academic affairs, and two at-large members elected from the membership. The admiral of this committee must be a member of the Alliance and is elected by the board.
The Celebration Team celebrates bold and creative teaching and enacts values of inclusion, diversity, and enjoyment. This team has at least three major campus units represented by their members.
The Outreach Team serves as a hub for sharing ideas. They collaborate with other campus bodies such as CELT, FACET, IRSC, DCS, OACS. They also facilitate interest groups from the campus and community for specific teaching related topics and facilitate departments in their mentoring of teaching.
The Outreach Team generally has five to seven members that represent FACET, CELT, and can have three additional faculty or staff members, as well as two students.
The Membership Team has the following responsibilities:
- Select members
- Develop, incorporate, and revise criteria for membership
- Foster continuing commitment
- Guide membership through roles of inclusion
The Programming Team coordinates programming among the boards and provides programming not offered by other boards.
The Assessment Team evaluates alliance efforts, goals, and progress toward its mission.
