You want a better world.
So do we.
On this year’s second annual TC Impact Day celebration, we’re furthering our pursuit of bold, evidence-based solutions to the world’s greatest challenges.
Impact is rooted in everything we do at TC. From helping teachers integrate digital learning tools into their curriculum, to improving school psychology offerings for underserved students, and advising governments on nutrition and food policy, the impact of our community can be felt near and far. But we need your help, and one of the many ways you can join us in this pursuit is sharing news of our second annual #TCImpactDay with your networks on social media or via email. We’ve put together the below resources to help.
Thank you for your continued support of Teachers College and participation in our community. We’re looking forward to seeing the change that continues to emerge from Teachers College’s alumni, faculty, students, friends and partners.
