Center for Learning Enhancement, Assessment and Redesign

thanksOutstanding teachers at UNT do make a difference for students.  They make learning challenging and fun; they are available when needed; and they weather many storms with students to foster bright futures.  When teachers have made this kind of a difference, many students wish for a way to say “Thanks”.

UNT students and alums have the opportunity to say “Thanks” through the “Thank a Teacher” Program here at UNT.  Current students and alums will have until December 5th to complete the form at to share their thanks with their UNT teacher(s).  You may complete as many of these forms as you wish (one for each teacher you wish to thank).  You may also choose to remain anonymous.  Your notes will be sent to your teachers as part of a letter of recognition from the Provost with copies to their Deans and Department Chairs!
