The Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL)

The Consortium for Innovative Environments in Learning (CIEL) is a growing network of distinguished, progressive higher education institutions. As a member of CIEL, Daemen College shares resources with the other member institutions.

Faculty members share ideas among faculty in the network, broadening their resources for teaching, curriculum development, assessment, and research.

Students present their academic work in the online student journal and at annual symposia, and they can participate in exchanges at CIEL member campuses or in study abroad programs offered through the network.

The current members are Alverno College (WI), Daemen College (NY), The Evergreen State College (WA), Fairhaven College at Western Washington University (WA), Hampshire College (MA), New College of Florida (FL), and Pitzer College (CA). CIEL was awarded $ 772,263 from the Fund for Improvement of Postsecondary Education in September of 2001.
