The Center for Applied Inclusive Teaching and Learning in the Arts and Humanities (CAITLAH) is a College of Arts and Letters (CAL) initiative at MSU committed to advancing effective and transformative teaching practices. We do this through our research on languages, texts, and cultures within and across boundaries of difference. We do this in our collaborations with teachers and faculty, developing new insights into curricular design, pedagogy, and creative assessments aimed at engaging all learners.
