Mission Statement

The Student Affairs area at Teachers College (TC), Columbia University is student-centered and supports the academic success and development of each individual graduate student enrolled at TC. We promote student success and development by cultivating and collaborating with faculty, staff, alumni and students to support the academic mission of the College through co-curricular programs and services. We support students in an environment that fosters inclusion, respect, community and cultural understanding. We strive to help our students grow intellectually, personally, psychologically, socially, culturally, and professionally so that they become active and engaged members of TC’s academic community.
