Welcome!  The staff of the Centre for Academic Excellence is committed to the continuous improvement of academic programs and academic pathways for our students through facilitating effective quality assurance processes, as well as offering a variety of instructional and curriculum development opportunities for members of our academic community.

We serve as a resource to the academic divisions throughout the stages of new program development, program cyclical review and ongoing program development and renewal.  We also serve all of the dedicated, talented and knowledgeable educators at the college throughout their teaching careers; helping them to enrich teaching and learning at Niagara College through their exploration of research into educational theories and practices, and through their implementation of innovative and engaging approaches to teaching, learning and assessment.

The staff of the Centre for Academic Excellence invite you to learn about all that we offer and encourage you to get in touch with us to find out how you can get connected to resources, colleagues, services and events through the CAE.
