The Council of 3M National Teaching Fellows is a community of award-winning teachers who are lifetime members of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE), and are a constituency within the STLHE.  The Council shares the aims of the STLHE, advises the 3M National Teaching Fellowships Program Coordinator, and undertakes projects that enhance teaching and learning in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
