About Us

Why Teachers College?

The collective breadth and depth of  faculty expertise on issues of race  and education at Teachers College,  Columbia University is unsurpassed.  Our team of TC-affiliated faculty  and graduate students from  seven different departments has  constructed an interdisciplinary,  research-based and holistic vision  of professional development that  enables educators to become more  culturally relevant in their practice  and tap into the educational  benefits to racially and ethnically  diverse student populations.

We are both excited and proud  of the ways that our faculty work  collaboratively in leading a national  conversation on these timely issues  by leveraging their research  and expertise.
