  • External Affairs Welcomes New Web Editor

    Teachers College made great strides last year with a redesign of the College's Web site and the addition of many new and vital departmental Web sites. Unfortunately though, with the departure of the Web Editor at the beginning of the summer, many of the sites began to lose their timeliness.

Though not new to Teachers College, Acquaro is very excited about his new position and is looking forward to the challenges of the job.
