Technological change is now one of the accepted constants influencing life and work on campus and beyond. UNC instructors are using technology to explore new opportunities to engage and challenge students, to lower barriers to student access, and to make their own teaching practices more satisfying and effective. The Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) works with faculty members to explore the appropriate and effective use of digital technologies, in partnership with other campus organizations such as ITS-Teaching and Learning, OASIS, and University Libraries.

Earlier this year, Lenovo announced that the CFE will receive approximately $400,000 over the next four years to support instructional innovation on campus. The funding is part of the University’s recent renegotiation of the Carolina Computing Initiative contract with Lenovo.
