Teachers College, Columbia University is the first and largest graduate school of education in the United States and is 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 also coordinate the educational, psychological, behavioral, technological, and health initiatives to remove barriers to learning at all ages.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization
Teachers College brings together a breadth of academic disciplines unmatched by any other graduate school of education within a single institution. Our name not withstanding, the College, from its inception has focused not only on pre-K-12 classroom education, but also on adult learning, leadership, health, psychology, nutrition, movement sciences, art, music education, and more. This vision of education (today embodied in 60 academic programs across 10 academic departments) supports learning that broadly enables the development not only of individual students, but of families and communities.
Research, Training, and Public Services
TC's current annual funded research expenditures are in excess of $43 million, with major funding provided by the US Department of Health and Human Services, US National Science Foundation, the US Department of Education, the NYS Department of Education, Say Yes to Education, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and other public and non-profit institutions.
TC also places a major emphasis on public and community service, both in its research and in preparation of its students. Through several of TC's academic centers and research initiatives, the College provides direct services to communities. One such example is the College's Office of School and Community Partnerships which collaborates with a group of Harlem public schools.
Auxiliary Enterprises provides a convenient source of meals and lodging for students enhancing their College experience.
Another major component of auxiliary enterprises is the Teachers College Press. Established in 1904 as the Bureau of Publications, the Press is one of the oldest and most distinguished publishers of educational materials in the United States. Since 1965, when the Bureau of Publications became Teachers College Press, its primary purpose has been to publish works that respond to, examine, and confront issues, and change pertaining to education and the educational process.
