We will continue to update this site with new COVID-19 policies and procedures and let a focus on the health, safety and well-being of our community guide all of our decision-making.

We thank all TC community members for their cooperation and commitment to following the policies detailed on this website. These policies are crucial to maintain as part of the College's plan to protect our campus and extended communities against the spread of COVID-19. 

Health Screening

COVID-19 Working Group

In spring 2020, President Bailey announced the formation of a working group charged with evaluating and putting forth recommendations on  campus health and safety measures in response to COVID-19. The working group’s analysis and recommendations are informed by state and local health and safety guidelines, and by the group’s collective knowledge of the distinct operations and needs of the Teachers College community.  

The College extends its gratitude to the members of the working group. Their dedication and commitment continue to make it possible for the College to operate safely on campus.
