Director, Hub for Teaching and Learning Resources
University of Michigan, Dearborn
Carla Vecchiola's work in the Hub for Teaching and Learning Resources is guided by the commitment to co-create programs and services with faculty rather than for faculty so that the Hub is meaningfully connected to faculty needs. The Hub serves as a network through which faculty can share their strong teaching practices in order to better serve Dearborn’s student population which is 44% Pell Grant eligible, 48% first generation, and 41% of whom have care-giving responsibilities. Carla earned her doctorate from the University of Michigan’s Program in American Culture; her doctoral research, an ethnography of Detroit electronic musicians, focused on cities and communities. She is also a Lecturer in History teaching two classes a year.
