Greetings, and welcome to the Office of the Associate Vice-President, Teaching and Learning. For over a century, teaching and learning has been Mount Royal’s highest priority. That remains so today. We at Mount Royal aim to provide our students with the best possible undergraduate experience, inspiring learning for a world of possibilities. We seek to prepare graduates for the world of work, for engagement as informed and effective citizens, and for next steps in formal education beyond Mount Royal. Through our teaching and curricula, we foster development of transferable skills such as critical thinking, communication and information literacy, and challenge students to consider new ideas, diverse perspectives and competing worldviews.

The Office of the AVP, Teaching and Learning, is charged with upholding Mount Royal’s longstanding commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, and the quality of its academic programs. The Office provides inspiration, leadership and support to the advancement of teaching and the development of high-impact learning opportunities for students.
