About Academic Festival 2010
Saturday, April 24th, Teachers College will celebrate Academic Festival 2010, our annual homecoming and a true celebration of the rich intellectual traditions, past and present, which make TC the nation's leading school of education. Academic Festival features a star-studded lineup of faculty and alumni speakers from all disciplines in three concurrent break-out sessions, the Distinguished Alumni Awards Luncheon and plenty of alumni networking.
President Susan H. Fuhrman will honor two extraordinary alumni with The President's Medal of Excellence the Honorable Nahas Angula '79, MP, the Prime Minister of Namibia; and Ulysses Byas '52, an inspirational educator who worked tirelessly to bring equality to schools in the segregated South of the 1950s.
The Dedication of the Joyce Berger Cowin Conference Center will be part of the Opening Ceremony exercises. Immediately following, Prime Minister Angula will deliver the Keynote Address: "The Quest for Doing Away with Bantu Education in Namibia – A Personal Journey."
We will offer several break-out sessions, designed for alumni to attend with their children of all ages, from infant to college bound, that explore the arts, science and even offer tips from top-tier admissions directors on getting into college.
