Lecturer Background

The Laurie M. Tisch Visiting Professorship was established in 2000 through the generosity of Trustee Emerita Laurie M. Tisch, to support a visiting faculty member during an academic year. The Distinguished Tisch Lecture is given annually by the visiting faculty to speak about a topic considered important to the future of education in the broadest sense.

Over the past 20 years, the Tisch lecture has continued to inspire audiences through the exploration of education and its impact on society. Past topics have addressed important issues such as educational equity, diversity and citizenship in education, and the implications of technology in both teaching and learning.

Laurie Tisch is the founder of the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, which strives to improve access and opportunity for all New Yorkers. The Illumination Fund consistently champions innovative approaches to education, the arts, healthy food and service in order to illuminate strategies that transform our urban landscape.
