Texas Woman’s University is celebrating its second Spotlight on Faculty Excellence during November 2015. This series of events highlights the many contributions of TWU faculty in the areas of teaching, scholarship, and service. The Spotlight on Faculty Excellence is sponsored by the Faculty Senate, Council of Chairs, Center for Faculty Excellence, and Academic Affairs. This is an annual recognition of the contributions of faculty, and additional events will be added each year to honor faculty accomplishments.   The 2015 events include:

Thank a Faculty

Students have the opportunity to let faculty know the ways they have influenced and enhanced their future possibilities. "Thank You Cards" will be sent to faculty members who have received comments from their students.

This is an ongoing process and all "Thank You" comments will be delivered each year after the semester during which the Spotlight on Faculty Excellence week is complete. Click the button to "Thank a Faculty!"  Thanks for taking the time to recognize the faculty who work with you in achieving your educational goals.
