“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.

Technical and Professional Writing Club

Do you want to improve your technical, professional, and non-fiction writing skills?

This could include:

  • scholarship essays
  • letters of intent/personal statements
  • grants and proposals
  • journal and news articles
  • press releases
  • persuasive articles
  • or any other informative or non-fictitious writings

Technical and professional writing is on the rise in almost all career paths! Why not find another way to improve this valuable skill?

My name is Shane, and I would like to form a Technical and Professional Writing Club. The hope is that this club would be primarily student organized and run. I have many ideas for the club including guest speakers, peer review sessions, and student workshops, but I can’t do this alone! This club would be open to all majors, and students at any academic level would be welcome.

There would be other benefits to assisting in the organization of this group as well. Besides becoming a better writer, you could also refine your leadership abilities. Defined and exhibited leadership skills are in high demand for many routes a student may pursue during and after college—whether it is grad school, an internship, or your first job. Why not add your experience and knowledge in the formation of this club? Also, it would look great on a resume or CV!

I encourage anyone interested to email me at if they would like more information, provide suggestions, or commit to helping form this club!
Thank you
