Words of Encouragement

The last several months have changed our lives in unprecedented ways, and we could all use some words of encouragement right now. To help remind our campus community that we are truly never alone, the Center for Teaching Excellence is asking you to share your words of hope, encouragement, and wisdom. Take a moment to inspire, motivate, and support students, faculty, staff, administration, or even our entire UF community!!

​Words of Encouragement

​​Katherine Fell, President, University of Findlay 
UF Faculty and Staff:
You are my heroes. Despite all impediments, you care for one another, you inspire our students, and you serve our great mission. In this month of Thanksgiving, I give thanks for you. ​
​Chris Denecker, Director of The Center for Teaching Excellence, University of Findlay
If you're feeling strong today, share that strength with another. Let your positivity seep into everything you see and touch. If you are struggling, don't be afraid to look up and look out--you will find the helpers waiting to walk with you through this journey. In the words of Maya Angelou, "Nobody can make it out here alone." https://poets.org/poem/alone. You are not alone. Oiler Nation is strongest when we come together!​
​Beth Stewart, Program Manager of the Center for Teaching Excellence, University of Findlay
You are unique. You are smart. You are talented. You are worth it. You are special. You are valued. You are loved. You matter. In case no one has told you yet today: you are amazing and you can do this!​​
