The Power of Teaching

Rich Lyons

“Teaching has the single biggest impact on the quality of our students’ experience.”
—Rich Lyons, Dean, Berkeley-Haas


Great teachers do not all have a single style - but they do all have a singular goal: to reach students in ways that have deep and lasting influence on how they think and act throughout their lives and careers.


We work with ladder and professional faculty, across all disciplines, all stages of the teaching career, and all levels of performance.

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) is here to help you be an exceptional teacher. We provide services and teaching resources as well as host events to promote outstanding teaching and deepen the focus on teaching excellence at Berkeley-Haas. Our teaching resources section has searchable syllabi, a wide selection of cases, and other reference materials, such as videos to support faculty.
