A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

The Teaching Support Centre offers a 'Western Certificate in University Teaching and Learning' (WCUTL) program. The goal of the WCUTL program is to enhance the quality of teaching by graduate students and to prepare them for a future faculty career. The presentation and group facilitation skills gained while completing the Certificate will not only benefit graduate students in pursuit of a faculty position, but are also valued by employers in business, industry and other non-academic fields. Program participants receive a certificate and a letter of accomplishment after they complete the following five program components:
1. TA Training/Microteaching Requirement
2. 10 workshops in the Future Professor series
3. The Teaching Mentor Program for Graduate Students
4. Submit a Teaching Portfolio
