Founded in 1887, the Gothic and Tudor-styled brick and sandstone buildings of Teachers College, Columbia University, occupy the block just north of Columbia’s main campus. Teachers College, Columbia University, is the oldest and largest graduate school of education in the United States, and also perennially ranked among the nation’s best. Its name notwithstanding, the College is committed to a vision of education writ large, encompassing our four core areas of expertise: health, education, leadership and psychology.

Teachers College sees its leadership role in two complementary arenas: One is as a major player in policy-making to ensure that schools are reformed and restructured to welcome all students regardless of their socio-economic circumstances. The other is in preparing educators who not only serve students directly but coordinate the educational, psychological, behavioral, technological, and health initiatives to remove barriers to learning at all ages. Teachers College was among the first recipients of funding under the state’s Community Schools Grant Initiative for its work with the Heritage School and P.S. 36 in Harlem. For more than 100 years Teachers College has continued to:

  • Engage in research on the central issues facing education
  • Prepare the next generation of education leaders
  • Educate the current generation of leaders in practice and policy to meet the challenges they face
  • Shape the public debate and public policy in education
  • Improve practice in educational institutions
