Phyllis Kossoff Featured in Education Update's "Women Shaping History" Series

TC alumna (and President's Advisory Council member) Phyllis Kossoff was profiled earlier this spring as Education Update's "Women Shaping History" series. The story particularly focuses on Kossoff's role in creating what is now now the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). Kossoff's daughter, Stefi, died of cystic fibrosis at the age of 19, during her freshman year at Barnard.

The story also highlights Kossoff's work on behalf of both Hunter College, which she attended as an undergraduate, and Teachers College, where she earned her master's degree in health and physical education. At TC, Kossoff has also generously funded the College's annual Phyllis L. Kossoff Lecture on Education Policy (speakers have included New York State Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia, New York City Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina, and, during the 2012 presidential campaign, the education advisors to the Obama and Romney campaigns) and the Phyllis and Burton Kossoff Scholarship Fund.
