Academic Festival, our annual signature homecoming event, showcases the full range of ideas and talents in our remarkable institution. Presented in unison, with Admitted Student Weekend, we take this opportunity to showcase the breadth and scope of Teachers College and our collective impact around the world. On Saturday, April 7, Teachers College proudly presents Academic Festival X: The Future of Education, Health, Psychology and Leadership.
Our theme this year is “X” – signifying the event’s anniversary year, but more importantly the question mark that hangs over the future of education, health, psychology and leadership, which are the College’s four core areas of focus.This special day truly offers something for everyone, and we encourage guests to take in as much they can.
