Professor Provides Shelves of Food for Any Student Who Needs It

Professor Provides Shelves of Food for Any Student Who Needs It | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Grace Nguyen, a student at UT Dallas, recently shared an email from her professor, Dr. Gayle Schwark, that will make you believe in the power of good teachers. Gayle emailed all her students to let them know she would have shelves of food available in her office for any student that needs some nourishment — for any reason, at any time, and they don't even have to be her student.

Teachers and professors don't get enough credit for the impact they have on their students. This small, touching move by one professor has the capacity to change kids' lives! Grace's tweet blew up as it demonstrated how much of a difference this professor' seemingly small gesture could make.

Austin Linley's curator insight, November 10, 2019 7:00 PM
An excerpt from CNBC from this article goes as follows “Each school is geared to determined young scholars eager to challenge themselves throughout their college career. In return for a degree at no cost – and with no debt burden – the commitment they require, even after graduation, is steep.” I believe if options like these were more available for students, the average of students in debt would lessen by a large amount.
