When the Media Call

Reporters for local and national newspapers and television programs are often looking for experts who can respond to questions about complicated issues such as special education, helping homeless children, school finance, nutrition, race relations, school violence, parenting, raising student test scores, and community health services.


Reporters for local and national newspapers and television programs are often looking for experts who can respond to questions about complicated issues such as special education, helping homeless children, school finance, nutrition, race relations, school violence, parenting, raising student test scores, and community health services.

Teachers College is one of the first places many reporters turn to for help. Every year, our faculty are featured in stories on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, the Washington Post, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Dallas Morning News, the Los Angeles Times and other publications.

Responses by the faculty to media queries help ensure that the public is getting accurate information about education today. It also benefits the College in many ways. Positive stories about our research can be added to the list of reasons why a foundation or government agency should underwrite the cost of faculty and student projects, for example. They also help the College compete for the best students in the nation.

This site is intended to help you deal with questions from the news media, however, never hesitate to call External Affairs. If you have a question about how to answer a reporter's question or how to handle an interview, please call External Affairs at 212-678-3412 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
