International Initiatives


TC works in partnership with several institutions in China to provide on-going professional development for educational leaders, improve primary and secondary education for children of migrant workers and expand access to college for female students from minority and poor backgrounds. The College also conducts cross-national research on equity in school finance.

In 2000, TC founded the Center on Chinese Education, which was the first of its kind in the United States to be devoted exclusively to Chinese education. To read more about the Center, click here.
