Apples 4 Educators – Show your appreciation with an apple!

The Land and Food Systems Undergraduate Society and the Equity and Inclusion Office gladly present: Apples 4 Educators!

The aim is for students, especially UBC’s international students, to give apples to their educators (professors, TAs, mentors, supervisors, etc.) in order to demonstrate your appreciation for the faculty and your education. We know that the more appreciated educators feel, the better the teaching tends to be, and students can play a huge role in fostering a positive learning environment and overall positive wellbeing for all.

We would like YOU to participate in our second annual student-led tradition and education appreciation. Pick up an apple at the Martha Piper Plaza and write an appreciation note which you will then drop off at your educator’s desk. We will have over 400 apples to give away so make sure they end up on your educator’s desk!

For Your Information: The tradition of students bringing an apple for their teacher has roots from the 17 or 18th century in Northern Europe or United States when poorer farmers would pay their children’s teachers with food – most notably with common and plentiful apples and potatoes.

Date & Time: Thursday, October 22nd, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Location: Martha Piper Plaza
