One of the nation's top undergraduate
           engineering, science, and mathematics colleges

The Center for the Practice and Scholarship of Education (CPSE) is unique among university teaching/learning centers in acknowledging and seeking to enhance both sides of the dual practitioner-scholar role of faculty. The CPSE nurtures and inspires individuals engaged in the practice and in the scholarship of education. By helping faculty achieve their full potential, the CPSE maximizes Rose-Hulman's impact on the education of science, engineering, and mathematics students.




"By far, the idea that has the biggest impact on my teaching is my love for our students."


Dr. Jim Hanson, of the Rose-Hulman Civil Engineering Department, received the 2008 Outstanding Teacher Award from the Illinois/Indiana section of the American Society for Engineering Education.


Learn about Dr. Hanson's professional development as an educator, teaching influences, and what aspects of teaching he still struggles with here.

The CPSE connects people with resources.
