The Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center Advisory Board is comprised of faculty representatives from each college and select administrators. Members advise and assist the Director of NTLC on all matters relating to the main mission of the NTLC—to share and value teaching and learning.
The Board supports and helps monitor and evaluate the accomplishment of organizational goals. It also assists with strategic planning and envisioning programs, activities and events that are aligned with the Center's mission. Board members provide financial guidance for
the NTLC yearly budget and they also strive to enhance the Center's public image by articulating its achievements and new directions to campus and outside public.
Board member selection is based on faculty recommendations, an individual's past involvement with NTLC programs, and his or her genuine interest in helping the Center grow and flourish. A cross representation from each of the colleges is actively sought. Member terms for faculty representatives last for three years.

Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center
The Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center (NTLC) is devoted to promoting and supporting the art and science of teaching. The NTLC encourages valuing teaching and learning by all members of the UW-Stout community, through collaboration, creating programs for faculty development, and facilitating the use of technology.
NTLC will share and value teaching and learning by:
NTLC nourishes a campus culture of learning and teaching characterized by discovery, curiosity, innovation, collaboration and research.
Programs sponsored by the NTLC's goals, mission and vision statements are closely aligned with the mission of the Nakatani Endowment Fund and the University's envisioning statements and Enduring Goals.
The Nakatani Endowment was established in 1993 through a bequest from Kiyo Nakatani, in memory of her late son, Arthur M. Nakatani, a UW-Stout alumnus. Arthur Nakatani earned his bachelor's and master's degrees from UW-Stout in 1971 and 1972, respectively, and taught elementary school in Hawaii until his death in 1989.
In 2008, the Teaching and Learning Center at UW-Stout was renamed the Nakatani Teaching and Learning Center and assumed joint leadership with Learning Technology Services in promoting the goals of the Nakatani bequest to create and apply technology and research to promote the art and science of teaching. The programs offered by the NTLC are supported with funds from the Nakatani Endowment.
