    A Message from Alumni Relations

    Happy Holidays from Alumni Relations! As we wrap up this extraordinary 125th Anniversary Year, we look toward 2014 with renewed focus and excitement, embarking on our historic $300 million dollar campaign: Where the Future Comes First, the Campaign for Teachers College (more below). Our non-financial campaign priority is to engage alumni and friends by: Activating Alumni Groups by Region, Affinity, Program; Increasing Alumni Participation; Communicating with More Alumni than ever before; Increasing TC Fund Participation; and Connecting Students and Alumni. You can expect to see a new look on our webpage, more alumni faces in our outreach and an exciting line up of events. We look forward to engaging even more TC alumni and friends in the New Year. Stay tuned and stay connected!
