Corporations and Foundations

Teachers College is grateful for the generosity of foundations, corporations and associations that support the College’s overall mission through activities such as program and curriculum development, research, student aid, and local school and community partnerships.  During a trying economic time, these institutional funders not only allowed the College to maintain its many programs, investigative projects and financial aid levels, but they also made it possible to embark on new and important community initiatives, engage in nationally vital research, and offer additional student support.

Hilary Pennington, Director of Education, Postsecondary Success, at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, voiced a concern that has long motivated Teachers College’s Community College Research Center researchers: “College enrollment rates have grown rapidly over the past 40 years, but completion rates haven’t kept pace. Getting students to college isn’t enough—we must help them get through college.” The CCRC’s grant from the Gates Foundation will support research identifying the most productive investments in community colleges for the Foundation’s Postsecondary Success initiative to increase student success.
