If there’s a faculty or staff member who has improved your student experience but you’ve never taken the time to thank them, there’s an easy (and even anonymous) way to express that gratitude.
The Student Government Association and the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning partner to bring you Thank A Teacher, which lets students easily thank someone through an online form. Those who receive thank you notes are also recognized at Dean Griffin Day, an annual event in April commemorating the legacy of Tech’s first dean of students, George Griffin, who worked to improve the student experience at Tech.
“Hearing back from students is more rare than you may think, and the impact that your short note can make is more powerful than you can imagine,” said Ahsan Khan, SGA’s vice president of campus affairs.
For those who’ve had a great experience with a professor, teaching assistant, or staff member, the online submission form is now open, and students may even choose to remain anonymous. Thank you notes can be for any action large or small from the past year.
