Our Student and Alumni Voices
We cannot be more proud of what our young EPOL friends do and what they have already achieved.

Emily Neff, M.A. in Education Policy, 2016.
"I applied to both education policy and public policy programs in Pittsburgh, D.C., Philadelphia, and New York City. Ultimately, what made me choose TC was the focus on education policy and social analysis. I remember a current student reaching out to me by email and being very helpful in answering my questions of the courses that were offered."

Isaac Solano, M.A. in Education Policy, 2015
"While a student in EPSA at TC, Isaac further harnessed his interest in public policy and researched how resources are used within public schools. After he completed his Capstone Project under the guidance of Teachers College professor Luis A. Huerta, Isaac realized that further inquiry into school resources was needed, especially into school resources back in his hometown of Denver, Colorado. That is precisely why he chose to return to Denver to pursue his doctorate degree"
