Laurie Tisch, Vice Chair of TC’s Board of Trustees, through the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, is supporting the College’s Office of School and Community Partnerships (OSCP) and its mission to strengthen teaching and learning outcomes in 12 elementary, middle and high schools in Harlem. As Tisch states, “For our country to continue to be a world leader, we need to ensure that all children are afforded the opportunity for a quality education. This means that every child must have access to a rich learning experience and that includes a full complement of classroom, enrichment and support services. The Teachers College effort and its strong partnership with local public schools really advance this vision.”
 
Upon earning her doctorate in clinical psychology from Teachers College, ynn P. Tishman wanted to alleviate some of the financial stress she’d seen her fellow TC students experience. She established The Lynn P. Tishman, Ph.D., Scholarship Fund, which provides tuition assistance for doctoral students in clinical psychology. “The doctoral program is rigorous enough without the constraints of work,” Tishman explains. “We’re all so fortunate to be selected for the program, and lessening the financial burden allows for an opportunity to feel more enriched by the process.”
