About the Thank-An-Eagle Program

For many instructors and mentors, an unsolicited "thank you" from a student is a highlight of their semester's experience. The instructor or staff member you thank receives a formal Thank-An-Eagle letter of recognition from the Faculty Development Center that includes the student's remarks.

The Thank-An-Eagle program was created by Dr. Amy Johnson (Chemistry Department) and Dr. Katherine Ryker (Geology & Geography Department), and funded through an FDC Program Request Proposal process for 2016–17.  This program was so successful, we are now offering it as an annual event.
