Support Faculty and Breakthrough Research

Since TC’s founding, our faculty have created and shaped new fields such as special education, nursing education, nutrition education, conflict resolution, urban education, and international and comparative education.

Along with recruiting the best students, TC must be able to attract and support the most innovative faculty and provide them with the resources they need.
