Teachers College is located in New York City, one of the most dynamic, cultural and educational centers in the world. Our student population is very diverse and includes international students, scholars and faculty from over 75 countries. TC combines a large number of part-time and full-time students who are very active in professional education circles and either commute or live on campus. There are a variety of student services and organizations at TC designed to support students’ programs of study, provide professional development opportunities, foster community and celebrate diversity.
The Office of Graduate Student Life & Development (GSLD), formerly known as the Office of Student Affairs, encourages TC students become familiar with programs and services designed to enhance the graduate student experience at Teachers College. Alongside academic studies in the classroom, Teachers College students have many out-of-class opportunities to engage peers and persons with diverse cultural experiences, to examine new philosophies, to develop new interests and skills, and to prepare for active participation in a rapidly changing global society.
