The Inauguration of Susan H. Fuhrman

The 10th President of Teachers College, Columbia University

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.
