Teachers College, Columbia University, is the first and largest graduate school of education in the United States and perennially ranked among the nation's best.
Founded 1887, the College has been home to many of the defining figures in American education, including John Dewey, James Earl Russell, and Edward Lee Thorndike. Through its three primary academic areas – education, health, and psychology – TC conducts research and prepares educators, psychologists, policymakers, and leaders for the challenges they will face in their careers.
Under its current President, Susan H. Fuhrman, Ph.D., Teachers College today has more than 5,200 students. More than 17 percent come from outside the U.S., representing 80 different countries. Of those who are U.S. citizens, 42 percent are minorities.
There are 154 full-time faculty members at the College, and 65 full-time instructors and lecturers, and about 100 additional part-time faculty members. TC's funded research expenditures in 2011-2012 totaled more than $40 million.
