Critical thinking skills are deemed an essential, but lacking, skill for college graduates. Few colleges and universities have purposive strategies in place to decrease the perceived deficit. In order to increase students’ critical thinking skills, Texas A&M University created an innovative faculty Critical Thinking Academy (CTA). The purpose of the academy was to increase the critical thinking skills of students in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences by equipping faculty with the knowledge, skills, and abilities in teaching and evaluating critical thinking as and to create a community of scholars. This study analyzed the impacts of the CTA and found participants developed new pedagogical strategies to increase critical thinking skills in their courses, increased their self-efficacy and implementation of critical thinking evaluation practices, and served as mentors to other faculty who wanted to expand their critical thinking pedagogy knowledge.
