AMES, Iowa -- Corly Brooke, director of the Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at Iowa State, has been appointed associate vice provost for undergraduate programs. The appointment is for two years.

Brooke will retain her post as CTE director and will take on a broader administrative role for teaching and learning enhancement. As part of her new responsibilities, Brooke will co-direct learning communities with Doug Gruenewald, ISU's assistant director of residence. Brooke also will assist Iowa State vice provost Howard Shapiro in developing an improved system of student evaluation of teaching; fostering increased scholarship of teaching and learning; promoting campus-wide initiatives that bring students, faculty and staff together to enhance learning; and working with the ISU Foundation.

"This realignment will allow us to provide better leadership as the campus community works to improve teaching and learning," Shapiro said.

Brooke joined the ISU faculty in 1976, and is a professor of human development and family studies. She was appointed director of CTE in 1998. Under her direction, CTE has expanded its role in faculty development with increased programming directed at teaching and learning. She has been instrumental in development of ISU's learning communities effort. Learning communities are innovative theme-based teams that integrate academic and social support needed for learning.
