Thank an educator program
Sponsored by Center for Teaching & Learning, Writing in the Disciplines, and Office of Community-Engaged Learning. See the recipients for Spring 2021.

Dear Students,

Has anyone at UVM been especially helpful or had a positive influence on your experience? Is there someone you always turn to when you need support and assistance?

This program—Thank an Educator—gives you the opportunity to acknowledge them publicly and express your thanks (with optional anonymity). This person may be a professor, a TA, or a staff member who has in some way been exceptionally supportive or whose teaching helped shape your choice of major, career goals, or worldview.

A list of recipients’ names and some selected messages (all anonymized) will be published on the Thank an Educator website and shared with the Provost’s Office.

If you would like to thank someone through this program, please complete the form below. It requires that you are logged in with your UVM NetID. Once you are logged in, you’ll see your name at the top of the form.

When writing your message of thanks, try to be as specific as you feel comfortable, because feedback is more meaningful when it contains details or a story. The person you’re thanking will receive your message after final grades are submitted, and you can choose whether that message is sent anonymously or with your name attached.

If you have questions or need help with the Thank an Educator form, please email us at

Thank you,
