About the Thank-An-Eagle Program

The Faculty Development Center hosts a university-wide event called Thank-An-Eagle, where EMU community members have a chance to thank an instructor, staff member, coach, GA or mentor who has helped them during their time here at EMU.

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.
