The Critical Thinking Program is a faculty development initiative designed to enhance students' capacity for careful and creative thought. It aims to infuse the explicit teaching of reasoning skills into courses across the Arts, Sciences, and Engineering curriculum. The program aids faculty in developing courses, facilitates the exploration of connections between different subject areas, and provides opportunities for interested faculty to discuss issues of pedagogy.

The director of the program works with faculty in both interdisciplinary and discipline-specific workshops to promote teaching that will enhance undergraduates' reasoning and analytic skills. Participants in all activities of the program meet throughout the academic year to share ideas and strategies. The program also offers stipends to support innovative course revision and development.
