In Brief: Gratitude Project, new stories on The Conversation, LQP hiatus
Show gratitude ahead of the holidays
Faculty, staff and students are invited to take part in the Gratitude Project and say thank you to those who have had a positive impact on them this semester or year.
The initiative, offered by Student Success and Retention Innovation, allows members of the campus community to send personalized thank-you notes to instructors, advisers, colleagues, friends or anyone else who has helped or supported them.
To participate, complete this online form and SSRI will send a personalized e-card to your recipient. Users can send as many messages as they would like. The office says it has sent more than 5,000 notes of gratitude over the last five years.

Each month, faculty members and researchers from across the University share their expertise on The Conversation, an independent, not-for-profit news source committed to communicating the work of scholars. The Conversation makes all of its articles available at no charge to any news organization that wants to republish them. In addition, The Associated Press distributes The Conversation articles to newsrooms across the U.S.
To recognize University of Arizona scholars who are contributing to The Conversation's goal of informing public debate "with knowledge-based journalism that is responsible, ethical and supported by evidence," the Office of University Communications regularly posts links to the articles that have been published on The Conversation.
Here are the articles published on The Conversation in November:
