AERI Home > History


Initially established under the Campaign for Educational Equity at Teachers College (TC) in 2006, the founding co-directors of AERI were Madhabi Chatterji and Professor Edmund W. Gordon, who undertook evaluation efforts of two comprehensive education programs, respectively: The Chemung County School Readiness Project and the Harlem Children's Zone.  
AERI's work continued through sponsored research or technical service projects prioritized by the College's leadership or partners in and outside TC and Columbia University.  Between 2006 and 2010, funders of AERI projects included the Community Foundation of Elmira, Corning and Finger Lakes area; the Global Education and Leadership Foundation, India; the Stemmler Group of the National Board of Medical Examiners; and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In 2008, AERI was moved under the Department of Organization and Leadership at TC, where it is currently housed.
