  • Thank a Teacher

Thank-A-Teacher Program

Students at USC often express how instructors make a positive impact on their life. The Thank-A-Teacher program provides a way for students to recognize instructors who go the extra mile, challenge and inspire them, and make a difference in their educational journey.

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) invites students to complete the Submission Form to send a note of appreciation to an instructor or teaching assistant (TA).  CTE will send a formal letter, that includes your note, and a certificate of appreciation to the individual(s) whom you select. You can thank as many instructors as you want. Submissions can be made anonymously.

Your note will be reviewed by the Center  for Teaching Excellence. 

Submission Deadline for Spring 2024: Monday, May 6, 2024
