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.
