Welcome from Ralph L. Pearson, Provost and Academic Vice President
Welcome to Duquesne University. As a new faculty member, you are joining an established community of teacher-scholars, where we value both the expertise you bring to promote students' learning and your unique contributions to scholarship.
Duquesne University is committed to the Spiritan tradition of excellence in liberal and professional education, the development of moral and spiritual values, an ecumenical atmosphere open to diversity, and service to others here and throughout the world. You are joining a community with a strong legacy.
Duquesne’s Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) supports all faculty members in college teaching and their faculty careers. CTE offers orientations, workshops, book studies, one-on-one consulting, and online and print resources to promote your success as an educator. The Center also updates annually the Faculty Resource Guide, which summarizes policies, resources and services. Please take some time to become acquainted with CTE by exploring this website.
Each year, we are blessed to add new faculty members to our community, and we wish you every success in your teaching, service, and scholarship.
Ralph L. Pearson
Provost and Academic Vice President
