When Thomas Bailey was inaugurated as Teachers College’s 11th President in 2018, his message was that, to help build a stronger and more equitable society, TC first needed to build “a stronger and more effective Teachers College.”
More specifically, Bailey sketched a vision of an administrative restructuring that would more effectively “encourage brilliant people to pool their ideas and efforts to achieve common aims” and develop “comprehensive solutions to deep problems.”
The College has since launched a range of efforts aimed at fulfilling Bailey’s vow to “create pathways for all to flourish.” The pandemic has kicked that work into even higher gear. TC has moved to the forefront in delivering teaching and learning online, reimagining its research culture to promote collaborations and enable more faculty to fund their work, and establishing a new career development center to help students and alumni prepare not only for the next job, but for the many job and career changes they will make throughout their lives.
