General Resources

The program in Adult Learning and Leadership hosts a number of events for students to promote learning outside the classroom and foster a sense of community within the program. Every semester, we offer professional development and social opportunities. Programming and professional development events are announced via our program website and through our program listserv. All admitted students are added to our program listserv.

Students are encouraged to join student chapters of professional associations as well as enroll under national memberships for organizations. A list of some of the professional associations associated with the field of Adult Learning and Leadership can be found on our website. In addition, students are encouraged to attend and participate in professional conferences as well as take advantage of opportunities within Columbia University and the New York City area.

There are about 25 student organizations at Teachers College, representing various aspects of the school's diverse student body. In addition, the Office of Student Activities and Programs organizes a range of activities on a regular basis, including workshops, social events, and networking opportunities.

Printing Options:

Option 1: The CU Library NINJA System:  The key to cheap printing is getting an "extended account." An extended account costs $35 for the semester and lets you print 100 pages per week for the entire semester. It is the most cost effective way to print. The only thing is that you cannot use TC printers, you have to go to Columbia campus. These are the steps to signing up:

  1. Go to 234 Horace Mann and sign up for the service. You must have your TC ID number with you. Phone: 212-678-3302
  2. Pay the $35.
  3. Go back to 234 Horace Mann and show them your receipt.
  4. Wait two days, and your account will be active. You can check online to see your quota of pages
  5. Visit their website for more information or questions: 

Option 2: The TC Library: Currently, the printers work on a card system that uses Flex dollars (which you may already have on your ID). Instructions are available here: note: Plans are currently underway for the TC Library to migrate to the CU NINJA system, so you will be able to use your extended account there as well
