Carla Vecchiola

Director, Hub for Teaching and Learning Resources

University of Michigan, Dearborn

US United States

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.
