The CIRTL Network

The Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching, and Learning (CIRTL) is a cross-university network of 42 diverse research universities across the US and Canada committed to advancing the professional development of the next generation of STEM faculty - graduate students and postdoctoral fellows pursuing academic careers.  CIRTL is sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Great Lakes Higher Education Corporation (GLHEC).  The University of Pittsburgh is a member of the CIRTL Network, and anyone at Pitt may participate in Network events.  Visit the CIRTL Network site:
