ALL Network

Adult Learning & Leadership (ALL) Network


About

The Adult Learning and Leadership (ALL) Network is the official student organization for Teachers College, Columbia University's Adult Learning and Leadership Program.

Mission

To establish a learning community that provides professional development, social networking, action research, and extra-curricular opportunities to access peer strategies for success in academic and career choices and pursuits.

Goals

As student leaders, practitioners, researchers, and lifelong learners, we seek to:

  1. Cultivate and sustain a community of practice both in-person and online with students, alumni, faculty, and industry practitioners to share and leverage diverse perspectives
  2. Invite community members to participate, facilitate, and co-create learning experiences and reference frameworks
  3. Leverage each other’s leadership and funds of knowledge through collaborative dialogue and peer coaching
  4. Create a platform where participants can apply adult learning theory in practice through events and initiatives that will have a positive impact on the whole Teachers College community

Structure

The key for ensuring sustainability for our holacracy and systems learning based organization is a shared leadership committee with two focused steps. The first step is that we will have regular check-ins and informal pulse surveys to ascertain that events, forums, and initiatives remain relevant and interesting to our members. The second step is that we will have a recruitment and an onboarding process to recruit new, motivated, energetic, and capable members into our leadership team at regular intervals so that we have ‘ready now’ successors as leadership members graduate and move on. Meanwhile, we will deliver essential training to successors so that the leadership legacy of the organization will always be passed on. Last but not least, through strategic thinking, planning, and implementation, we will reflect upon where we are, where we are going, what has worked, and what has not worked. By working in this way, we can develop both long-term and short-term goals and action plans aligned with our mission to ensure the longevity of this organization.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, & Belonging Statement

We aim to cultivate an equitable, diverse, inclusive, and sustainable community of practice with visionary and strategic goals. We want to make a space for belonging where you feel welcomed and can contribute and co-create. We celebrate diverse identities, perspectives, and voices and do not discriminate based on race, color, ethnicity, culture, national origin, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, religion, spirituality, marital status, veteran status, physical abilities, learning abilities, and learning styles.
