Our school features a community of motivated students and scholars who embrace the power of education to open the doors of opportunity for all. We believe that diversity—among our students, across the schools in which they practice, and even in the urban context itself— creates rich possibilities for teaching and learning. Our ability to practice what we teach is inseparable from the generous support of our donors.
Since our founding in 1921, we have proudly upheld and extended City College’s historic mission of access and excellence to mirror the diversity of New York City neighborhoods. Your gifts allow us to educate the future generation of teachers who can rise to the challenges and respond to the needs of urban schools. Your partnership also provides our faculty with the vital resources to engage in scholarship and create innovative curriculum that advances knowledge, informs policy, and improves practice so that all students have support and an opportunity to receive the highest quality education.
Thanks to your support, we are able to:
Launch the Dr. Charlotte K. Frank Center for Mathematics Education, a partnership supported by the New York City Department of Education and City College to promote professional development opportunities.
Establish the merit-based Barbara Kramer Cohen Scholarship Fund awarded each year to talented graduate and undergraduate students for tuition and other educational opportunities who are committed to teaching at the K-12 level in urban areas.
Recognize the leadership abilities of our candidates with donor support, such as the Dr. Joyce Coplin Educational Leadership Scholarship and the Golding-Donaldson Leadership in Education Scholarship.
- Create innovative programs, such as the Dr. Jerry Gelbwachs Fellowships in Science Education, to identify and recruit talented educators to New York City schools who might not otherwise choose the teaching of science as a career.
“I am honored to represent and work with faculty and staff who are deeply committed to teacher education, urban schools, and scholarship that informs policy as well as practice. I am equally honored to represent and serve a student body that exemplifies diversity in all of its manifestations, an asset that my colleagues and I cherish and nurture.”
