For over 100 years, Massachusetts Maritime Academy has been preparing women and men for exciting and rewarding careers on land and sea. As the nation's finest co-ed maritime college, MMA challenges students to succeed by balancing a unique regimented lifestyle with a typical four-year college environment. As a member of the cadet corps you will live, study, sail, work and play in an atmosphere that encourages you to be your best.
MMA has partnered with the Association for College and University Educators (ACUE) to offer ACUE’s course in Effective Teaching Practices, which aims to equip both part-time and full-time faculty with the instructional skills shown to promote student motivation, learning, and persistence. Along with a number of other Academy initiatives related to faculty professional development and student success, this partnership is being supported through a fiscal year 2019 grant from the Massachusetts Performance Incentive Fund (PIF). MMA instructors who complete the ACUE program will be eligible for course redevelopment grant.
