NI STAFF, NI Editors

Although spring break may have been cancelled for 2021, UNI hopes to boost campus spirits by celebrating “UNI Gratitude Week” from March 15-19.

Information about the weeklong event was shared on the UNI Calendar of Events by Jonathan Chenoweth, professor of music and director of the UNI Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).

“Let’s fill our missing spring break with messages of appreciation — posts, emails, hand-written notes — to those Panthers who mean a lot to us,” stated the announcement.

More information about how to get involved with UNI Gratitude Week will be released via social media and campus announcements soon.

The following is a brief list of the themes of each day:

Monday, March 15: Props to a Prof. Send a quick note of thanks to a professor who has impacted your journey.

  Tuesday, March 16: Stoke the Staff. Write a thank you to a special custodian, secretary, groundkeeper or staff in any department.

Wednesday, March 17: Yays to GAs/Student Employees. UNI couldn’t run without our student employees. Give yours a shout-out!

Thursday, March 18: Standing Ovation to Students. We are here to help students achieve beyond. Tell students why you appreciate them!

Friday, March 19: Admire an Administrator. Administrators serve the university and keep programs humming along. Thank yours!
