New Era, Long-standing Ties

A new era has begun at TC, heralded by a new President and a redoubled focus on working together across our many fields and strengths. It’s an exciting time and one in which our alumni — and their experience, wisdom and influence — have become even more important. Indeed, President Thomas Bailey has hit the ground running in his efforts to reach out to alumni and communicate his vision for making the College an even more powerful force for building a better world.

Read on to learn about his travels and other inspiring alumni doings — including our ongoing programming around issues like smarter parenting, and the inspiring presence of so many illustrious TC graduates during Inauguration Week in December — as well as the launch of our new online directory. It’s all proof that while Teachers College changes for each new era, we continue to function as an extended community — 90,000 strong.
