Villanova Institute for Teaching and Learning (VITAL)


Reflecting the University's emphasis on excellence in both teaching and learning, the Villanova Institute for Teaching and Learning (VITAL) was established in 1998 under the auspices of the Office of Academic Affairs. VITAL's role is to offer instructional support for all Villanova faculty.

The center provides and coordinates services and resources for faculty members from all disciplines who are interested in helping their students become more effective learners. VITAL's director is Gabriele Bauer.
