Dr. Jennifer Maney named permanent director of Center for Teaching and Learning

Dr. Jennifer Maney has been named the permanent director of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). She will begin the role on July 1.

Maney has served as interim director since summer 2019. In the past year, she has provided leadership through innovative programming – workshops, seminars, consultations and other programs to support faculty pedagogy and engagement.

Maney provides support around Ignatian pedagogy to help faculty bridge Marquette’s academic mission and the Catholic Jesuit tradition. She will continue to work passionately to help faculty create classrooms that reflect inclusion, equity and justice.

The CTL includes Marquette’s award-winning Service Learning Program as well as the Ott Memorial Writing Center. The CTL has also collaborated closely with the Division of Digital Learning during the COVID driven crisis to provide faculty support for blended and online courses.

“I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to continue the work I have done in the CTL over the past several years,” Maney said. “I love building community with faculty and offering them opportunities to think about emerging pedagogies using tenants of the Jesuit tradition and Ignatian pedagogical paradigm to inform the equitable classroom and university experience.”

Maney has a doctorate in educational policy and leadership with a focus on diversity education. She has a master’s degree in counseling – with experience in both mental health and career and vocational development. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

In her previous role in the College of Education, Maney worked with Milwaukee Catholic schools, providing professional development to K-12 teachers and school leaders, and researching issues of cultural equity.
