“Thank a Teacher” Project

The Center for Educational Innovation is a program that helps students express their gratitude to professors, instructors or TAs who have made a difference in their education.

We call it the “Thank a Teacher” project and it’s easy. Students go to the website, write a note of thanks and we take it from there. Students can say what they like and choose to be anonymous, if they prefer. All notes are reviewed before being printed and sent to instructors.

The Thank a Teacher project is a great way for students to express their gratitude for their instruction, and teachers at the University really appreciate hearing these unsolicited comments. The project has been around since around 1998.
