Visiting Scholar Information
What is a Visiting Scholar
Teachers College is host to visitors who do not hold academic appointments at the College. To accommodate the needs of these individuals, the College confers Visiting Scholar status. Visiting Scholars generally hold a doctorate (or its equivalent from a country other than the United States) or are a recognized expert in the field, and are on leave from a regular faculty appointment at their employing institution. Others eligible for Visiting Scholar privileges include Teachers College doctoral alumni; staff and doctoral students from foreign universities and government ministries who are engaged in research of special interest to a Teachers College faculty member; and such other persons as will contribute to the intellectual activity of Teachers College, as approved by the Vice Provost. Visiting Scholar status is conferred on behalf of the Provost and Dean of the College by the Vice Provost or the Director of the Office of International Student Services, on the recommendation of a faculty member in whose academic discipline the proposed visiting scholar has an interest. The faculty host should also obtain the approval of the department chair.
