Alumni Council Presidentâ€™s Message
Published in TC Today - Volume 33, No. 1
Dear Fellow Alumni,
Welcome back to Teachers College!
With fall semester now in full swing, TC is—once again—teeming with activity. And the Alumni Council is in the midst of planning several months of activity with the support of an exuberant new team in the alumni office, staffed by Chris Greaves, our newly appointed Director of Alumni Relations; Lindsay Brennan, our new Associate Director of Alumni Relations; and Marlene Tucker, our new Alumni Relations Liaison
Here’s a glimpse of what we’re planning for the upcoming year:
Nine regional events, including receptions in Westchester, Bergen County, New York City, Washington, D.C., Miami and South Florida.
Six appearances at academic conferences, including the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) conference in San Francisco, February 19-21; the American Educational Research Association (AERA) conference in San Diego, April 13-17; and the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) conference in Galveston, South Carolina, March 22-26.
Two “virtual” Web forums to engage our out-of-state and international alumni population directly in lectures and panel discussions at the College.
Academic Homecoming, slated for April 2009.
An “Alumni of the Quarter” contest to recognize our outstanding alumni for their achievements on a public and ongoing basis.
As always, the Alumni Council is taking a leadership role in planning programs and volunteer opportunities for alumni; however, this year, we are striving to engage you in that process. The twin themes of my tenure as president have been: (1) collaboration and (2) collaboration, so:
If you live abroad or out of state, join us for a virtual lecture and discussion (sans wine and cheese).
If you have suggestions for Academic Homecoming (e.g. speakers, programming concepts, etc.), email the Office of Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’d like to nominate someone for the “Alumni of the Quarter” award, email email@example.com
To ensure that your former classmates and colleagues are being invited to College events, visit www.tcinvite.com
and add their addresses to our email listserv.
To volunteer your home for an event, contact us at 212-678-3215.
With nine academic departments and more than 75 programs, your alma mater was virtually designed to cater to your evolving pursuits and interests, so you have every excuse to come back and visit your old haunts: Russell Courtyard, Everett Lounge, the Gottesman Library! And never forget, you’ll always have a home on 120th Street
