The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning

Units and programs housed within the Center include Academic Advising and Degree Planning, Finish Line, Academic Internships, Experiential Learning, UM Online, Instructional Impact, Off-Campus Centers, Professional and Continuing Education, and Public Service.

Academic Advising and Degree Planning

Academic Advising helps students develop and achieve life, career, personal, and academic goals through a network of professional academic advisors, faculty advisors, and leaders in academic advising.

Finish Line Program

Finish Line assists students who previously attended the University of Memphis and have completed 90 or more credit hours, but have regrettably had to abandon their dreams of completing a college degree. Academic advisors work with students to evaluate previously earned credit, identify all possible routes to graduation, and explore low-cost course completion strategies.

Academic Internships

Academic Internships is dedicated to providing students valuable, real-world experience. Students find information about locating and preparing for the right internship to further their career goals and earn academic credit for their degree program.

Experiential Learning Credit Program

Rigorous professional and/or personal development occurs in settings outside the traditional classroom. This program grants Experiential Learning Credit (ELC) to both undergraduate and graduate students who demonstrate the academic merit of such experiences, including worksite training, professional organization certification, military training, community volunteerism, and unique life experiences.  

UM Online

UM Online brings learning to students at their home and workplace. Courses are designed and taught entirely online by the same faculty who teach on campus. Most online students complete their entire degree without coming to campus and are able to access online services such as registration, financial aid, and advising.

UM3D Instructional Impact

UM3D provides resources that target online, hybrid, and face-to-face , instruction with the primary goal of ensuring the best learning outcomes for students. One-on-one consultations are also available for faculty involved in the design, development, and delivery of UM Online (M50) programs and courses.

Off-Campus Centers

Off-Campus Centers offer convenient face-to-face classes (day or night) at our new center in Collierville, as well as Millington. Classes include undergraduate and graduate courses in general education, marketing, management, accounting, education and more. On-site registration, financial aid and academic advising, tutoring, and computer labs are available at some of our centers.

Professional and Continuing Education

Professional and Continuing Education narrows the educational gap in the public left by degree programs. Offering three main types of courses: Customized Training courses (for businesses and industry), Continuing Education credit (CEU) for professional development programs, and court-approved National Safety Council Driver Improvement courses.

Public Service

Public Service makes University talent, knowledge, and resources available to the regional community. We welcome funding requests from U of M departments for exhibits, performances, conferences, seminars, and other educational activities offered to benefit the public.
