The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is a nation-wide online network of 40+ universities that seek to enhance excellence in undergraduate education through development of a national faculty committed to implementing and advancing evidence-based teaching practices for diverse learners. The goal of CIRTL is to improve the learning of all students at every college and university, and thereby to increase the diversity in fields and the literacy of the nation.

The CIRTL@UCLA program supports the professional and career development of graduate students, postdoctoral scholars, and current faculty who are engaged in teaching now, or who are considering academic careers. The collaboration of CIRTL@UCLA and the national network inspires commitment to use effective teaching practices for diverse college students, and to provide current and future faculty the knowledge and tools to do so.  The project was funded by the National Science Foundation to support future faculty in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), but has expanded to include graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from ALL disciplines.
