The Sherrerd Center for Teaching and Learning was founded in 2009 through a generous bequest from the family of Kathleen Compton Sherrerd ’54 and John J. F. Sherrerd, longtime supporters of excellence in teaching at Smith College. The center enables the academic success of all Smith students through faculty development efforts that support teaching and learning at the college.
We are pleased to announce that Patty DiBartolo will serve as the Interim Director of the Sherrerd Center for Teaching and Learning for the academic year 2023-24. Caroline Melly will return to the role of director in academic year 2024-25 after a year-long sabbatical.
