TC Holds first academic festival

TC held its inaugural Academic Festival in April, a new-look academic homecoming event for TC alumni and friends. Styled as an “academic festival” and themed “Thinkbank 2.0: A World of Ideas,” the event was unique in that the presentations spanned the breadth of TC’s academic programs.
TC Trustee John Merrow, the award-winning education journalist, delivered the event’s keynote address.
 
At the Festival, the College presented its Distinguished Alumni Award to honorees Patricia Lynne Duffy (M.A., 1981), an instructor of English as a second language and communications at the United Nations; Edward Dunkelblau (Ed.M., 1976), Director of the Institute for Emotionally Intelligent Learning; Joan Dye Gussow (Ed.D., 1975; Ed.M., 1974), the Mary Swartz Rose Professor Emerita at TC; and Rawley Applebaum Silver (M.A., 1936), artist and art therapist.
 
TC’s Early Career Award was presented to Keiichi Ogawa (Ph.D., 1999; M.A., 1997; Ed.M., 1995), Professor of Economics and Education at the Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies at Kobe University in Japan.

The 2010 Academic Festival will be held at TC on April 24.
