TC is a Proud Participant in

CU SpeakOUT!

CU SpeakOUT is a training program in which straight-identified allies and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people are educated about LGBTQ issues and can actively express their affirmation for the LGBTQ community at Columbia University.

The flyer on this website is a list of TC staff and faculty* who have taken part in the CU SpeakOUT training. These individuals have agreed to make their workspaces safe to talk about LGBTQ issues and to be places where students, staff, and faculty can be "out" or reveal their sexual orientation or gender identity. We have been excited to see this list grown throughout the years, as additional trainings have been held!

* Lack of inclusion on this list should not be interpreted to indicate one’s attitude regarding LGBTQ people or issues one way or another.

NYC Pride March on June 25,2017: Join TC Team!

Message from Tom Rock, Vice Provost for Student Affairs


This Sunday is the NYC Pride March and there is still time to sign up with the TC "We Are Proud" Team. 

Please join TC Student Affairs for this year's NYC Pride March held on Sun, June 25th! For more information and to join the Teachers College "We Are Proud" Team, please sign-up at by Wednesday, June 21st. 

The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect. The March is a celebration of our lives and our community. In 2016, we were joined by over 350 unique marching contingents, representing a vast array of nonprofits, community organizations, corporate partners, small businesses, political candidates and activists! With over 80 floats making the trek down Fifth Avenue, last year’s March was one of the largest and most exciting in history. Viewing the march is free and open to the public; however, to participate you must be registered! Registration and participation is free, however, you are able to make a donation if you desire. To make a donation, please visit the NYC PrideMarch website at: 

Our TC Staging Area will be on 41st Street between 5th and Madison. Anyone marching must check in at this location by 2 p.m.on Sunday, June 25. We will have a meeting location at TC for those who would like to go to the staging area together. More information to come. 

On behalf of TC Student Affairs, many thanks for your support. We hope to see you there! Don't forget to sign up using the link above by June 21.
