Mission and Goals

Mission Statement

The Teaching and Learning Resource Center (TLRC) at Midwestern State University is founded on the belief that the university community is the optimal context for expanding discourse among faculty, staff and students. In concert with the mission of the university, TLRC supports all members of the university community, both on campus as well as at a distance, in the continuous development of lifelong learners. The TLRC seeks to promote a collaborative community supportive of teaching excellence. Congruent with the university’s goal of being a liberal arts education leader, the Center’s focus is on providing avenues for expanding communication among all communities of interest locally, regionally, and globally.
