Educational equity - a moral imperative for the 21st century
Wednesday, January 31, 2007 at 2 p.m.
at the Riverside Church
Teachers College, Columbia University, will hold formal ceremonies on January 31st to inaugurate Susan H. Fuhrman as its tenth president. Dr. Fuhrman, a noted education researcher and an early analyst of the state education standards movement, is a TC alumna who became the College's president in August 2006.
The inauguration is a major occasion in the life of the College -- a celebration not only of Dr. Fuhrman herself, but also of ideas and the College's enduring values, and of the energy and redoubled commitment that a new president brings to the table. For ultimately, though Teachers College is entering a new era, we also are affirming the things we have always stood for: excellence in education and research, a commitment to helping poor and disadvantaged students, and a focus on education in all areas as the best means for sustaining and improving a democratic society.
Please note that all attendees will require an invitation and to RSVP. Invitations are being sent to members of the Teachers College community. Please contact the Special Events Planning office for more information regarding ticket availability.
