Maxine Greene Society

Community in Common Purpose

Maxine greeneTeachers College inaugurated the Maxine Greene Society to recognize and thank a community of donors whose reliable participation – year after year – exemplifies Maxine Greene’s value of deep engagement and helps further our common purpose here at Teachers College.

Professor Emerita Maxine Greene has been a the forefront of educational philosophy for almost half a century as a teacher, lecturer and author.  A beloved Teachers College faculty member since 1965, Maxine Greene's life's work has been to encourage deep engagement in the world, which resonates through all we do at Teachers College.

Members will be invited to special College events throughout the year, to meet with and hear from faculty and students, to learn about life-changing work we're doing at Teachers College, and to see the impact of your steadfast support.




The Value of Consistency

The Maxine Greene Society brings together Teachers College’s most loyal alumni and friends who have given their consistent support through an Annual Fund gift every year for five years or more.  These consecutive gifts, at any level, are a mainstay of our operating budget and allow the College to keep pioneering bold new ideas in human development and learning. 

Join Us in Leading the Way

Maxine Greene's signature philosophy has been "imagining things as if they could be otherwise."  With your help every year, Teachers College can continue to do this every day.
