Each year we celebrate our faculty during Faculty Appreciation Week. I do not play a direct role in implementing the campaign but enjoy helping promote the final product.
We ask our campus community to give shout-outs to their favorite professors. These messages of support are then shared on the UT website and the UT social media accounts.
This year’s theme was “Faculty Footnotes.” The university highlights faculty about their life experiences, special interests, and personal passions. We share the stories on the UT website and in the campus newsletters. This is a great way for students to learn more about their professor’s lives outside of the classroom.
My favorite part of this year’s campaign were the videos shared on our social media accounts. You can watch all four videos on our Instagram account.
How do you celebrate faculty on your campus? Do you have a week that celebrates staff on your campus?
