Thank a Teacher Program
The NC State Thank a Teacher program was launched in Fall 2010 to allow students the opportunity to thank NC State professors who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in their lives. If a professor has made this kind of positive impact on your experience at NC State, please complete the form below to let your instructor know you value him or her. For many teachers, an unsolicited “thank you” from a student is a highlight of their semester’s teaching experience. And, instructors get the added bonus of being formally recognized by the Provost, their deans, and department heads.
The instructors you thank will receive a formal letter of recognition from the provost that includes your remarks. You can thank as many instructors as you want. Submissions can be made anonymously. During the 2012-2013 academic year, OFD received over 600 submissions from students! Let’s keep up the good work!
Submit your thank you notes by completing this form: http://go.ncsu.edu/thankateacher
