Joyce Berger Cowin, long-time TC Trustee, (M.A., Curriculum and Teaching, 1952), is the founder and supporter of the Heritage School, an arts-themed high school in East Harlem founded by TC faculty. Cowin, a long-standing and loyal partner at TC, is the lead donor for TC's new Conference Center. We are happy to celebrate her generosity in the spirit of Academic Festival and pay her a special tribute.
