In 2007, an award-winning documentary film, "Beyond Belief," portrayed the efforts of two women whose husbands were killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks to promote tolerance and raise money for war widows and orphans in Afghanistan. Now a TC team is creating a study guide to accompany the film.

Seven Teachers College faculty members have been named 2010 Fellows of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The purpose of the AERA Fellows Program is to honor education researchers with substantial research accomplishments, to convey the Association's commitment to excellence in research, and to enable the next generation of emerging scholars to appreciate the value of sustained achievements in research and the breadth of scholarship worthy of recognition. The Program is intended to recognize excellence in research and be inclusive of the scholarship that constitutes and enriches education research as an interdisciplinary field. Fellows are nominated by their peers, selected and recommended by the Fellows Committee, and approved by the AERA Council, the Association's elected governing group.
