Inside ADT:


Welcome to the Academy of Distinguished Teachers website. Established in 1999, the Academy of Distinguished Teachers is a forum through which its members provide important leadership to the University community, serving as mentors, advisers, and spokespersons for the University’s teaching mission. Academy members come from all of the University's campuses.
