Thoughtful of U

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead

Kindness is more important than wisdom, and the recognition of this is the beginning of wisdom. - Theodore Isaac Rubin

Kindness can become its own motive. We are made kind by being kind. - Eric Hoffer

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves. - Amelia Earhart

We recognize that a strong sense of belonging and community spirit is closely linked to knowing that your contributions are valued and having colleagues that demonstrate support, camaraderie and appropriate concern for the well-being of others. As an extension to the formal and informal recognition programs already established, the Thoughtful of “U” website is designed to assist all members of our campus community by providing an easy way for you to acknowledge and show appreciation for the actions of others, or simply to be supportive.

Recognition and acknowledgment does not have to be a grandiose gesture. In our busy and often stressful work and learning environment a sincere thank you can make a significant difference in someone’s day.
