Stories from the Teachers College Newsroom
Carrying our legacy forward requires that we attract and retain eminent scholars and educators who will continue to advance learning, chart paths of innovation and discovery, and guide our students to become great future scholars and leaders.
Teachers College strives to establish an institution that actively attracts, supports, and retains diverse students, faculty, and staff, demonstrated through its commitment to social justice, its respectful and vibrant community, and its encouragement and support of each individual in the achievement of their full potential.
Our multicultural, urban environment impacts almost everything we do and provides unique educational and social opportunities found nowhere else. We also have deep ties with the local community. Many of our projects and offices work to directly impact our city, students, and educators.
Visit our campus to sample the learning and social environments we have designed for our students, faculty and staff.
