A Capitol Celebration
In January, the Office of Alumni Relations kicked off TC’s 125th anniversary year with a regional celebration in Washington, D.C. The event featured a reception for students and alumni at the Cosmos Club, planned in conjunction with the annual Federal Policy Institute (FPI). Mildred Otero, Chief Education Counsel of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee was this year’s featured speaker. FPI celebrated its 15th year under the leadership of Sharon Lynn Kagan (Ed.D. ’79), Marx Professor of Early Childhood and Family Policy and Co-Director of TC’s National Center for Children and Families. During the week-long program in D.C., FPI students have the opportunity to identify a policy issue of personal interest and to explore that issue with the nation’s senior policymakers.
