One of the benefits of our joining our learning community is the strength of our vast resources (people, technology, research). Dating back to 1887 Teachers College, Columbia University was founded in 1887 by the philanthropist Grace Hoadley Doge and philosopher Nicholas Murray Butler to provide a new kind of schooling for the teachers of the poor children in New York City, one that combined a humanitarian concern to help others with a scientific approach to human development. Today Teachers College is a one-of-a-kind graduate institute deeply passionate about helping learners become one-of-a-kind leaders of institutions around the world drawing on a range of disciplines including arts and humanities; bio-behavioral sciences; counseling, clinical, social and organizational psychology; curriculum and teaching; health and behavior; human development; international and trans-cultural; mathematics, science and technology; and organization and leadership.
