Shurmur Center for Teacher Development

Where active students learn to share their passion for knowledge.

Central to the liberal arts tradition is its particular commitment to exploring the interconnected nature of knowledge and the resulting passion for learning that it generates and sustains. The intellectual skills of critical thinking, assimilation, integration, and creative problem solving are core competencies of a liberally educated person. They are also the hallmarks of effective teaching.

To advance the liberal arts tradition as the best foundation for teacher preparation, Albion College has established the Fritz Shurmur Center for Teacher Development.
