The Center for Teaching Excellence will provide, free of charge, copies of books to faculty who commit to a meeting or meetings to discuss those books in depth. Any three or more faculty, preferably from at least two different disciplines, who wish to read and discuss any book directly concerned with teaching, can apply to the Directors, who will order the copies immediately via the Net and have them within several days. The books can be from the Center's collection or others of faculty choice. They may be classics, like Gilbert Highet’s The Art of Teaching, or completely new publications. The sole restriction is that they not be strictly discipline-based, but focused rather on teaching and learning.
