The Centre for Academic Teaching brings together a range of partners, each with its own scope, home base, expertise and organisational approach to activities. Here, they join forces and complement each other. As a network, the Centre is open to all initiatives that share any or all of its four aims, whether organised at the faculty or university level, or bottom-up by the teaching community. At the institutional level, the Centre for Academic Teaching represents the joint faculties and teaching community in strategy discussions and nationally and internationally.

To aid its collective efforts, the Centre for Academic Teaching has a support office at the Utrecht University Library in the Science Park, which serves all partners and members of the teaching and learning community. It actively supports partner initiatives as needed and organises activities for the network as a whole.
