Sherrerd Center for Teaching & Learning
The Sherrerd Center for Teaching and Learning was founded in 2009 through a generous bequest from the family of Kathleen Compton Sherrerd ’54 and John J. F. Sherrerd, longtime supporters of excellence in teaching at Smith College. The center enables the academic success of all Smith students through faculty development efforts that support teaching and learning at the college.

Theme for 2019–20: Partnership
Just as we at the Sherrerd Center believe that there are many different ways to teach well and that all teaching is improvable, we also understand that there are different kinds of partnerships (student-faculty, peer instructor, institutional, community, etc.), and all partnerships are improvable. Learn more about this year’s theme.
