Event description

Description

We invite all first-generation graduates to join us for this exciting celebration. This is the 3rd year Teachers College has hosted this unique event that recognizes and honors first-generation scholars' achievements at Teachers College, Columbia University.

This year’s theme is Honoring Legacy and Unity. Through this celebration, we will honor you and those that have impacted and supported you on your academic journey.

This graduation celebration will include:

  • an address by President Susan Fuhrman;
  • faculty speakers;
  • and addresses by graduating students.

Most significantly this celebration will honor families and loved ones for their continued encouragement and support of students as they have completed their graduate studies; overcoming the barriers that coincide with identifying as a first generation scholar and/or student of a diverse background.

If you identify as a first generation scholar and/or as a student of a diverse background we encourage you to participate in this Celebration.

Last year over 80 first generation scholars celebrated with their family and friends.
