Teachers College will honor six alumni for critical contributions to their fields and the TC community during the College’s first TC (Re)Unites, a reimagined reunion for alumni, students, faculty, staff, friends and neighbors, on Saturday, Oct. 14. 

Gathering the TC community on campus following a week of special virtual programming, attendees will also experience the Charo Uceda Women’s Empowerment Lecture, delivered by Sayu Bhojwani (Ph.D. ’14), who will present “Borders and Belonging: Searching for a Healthy Democracy.” 

Both the Uceda Lecture and Alumni Awards, hosted in a joint event, are posed to not only offer recognition for courageous work that aligns with TC’s bold pursuit of true change, but also inspire a redoubled commitment to that work. 

“The indelible spirit of our community will be felt in its entirety on campus for the first time since the pandemic, and we’re thrilled to finally reunite,” says TC Alumni Council President, Brian Kennerly (M.A. ’92). “TC’s alumni, students, faculty and friends are all bound by an unwavering commitment to enacting meaningful change through education, health and well-being, and gathering to learn from one another and exchange ideas will further invigorate that work.”
