Global Update: Newsletter of the International & Comparative Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University

Message from the Program Director

Dear Students, Alumni, Faculty, and Friends of the ICEd Program, 

We are excited to welcome everyone to the new academic year and back to campus! After two years of disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are back to our new “normal” for in-person classes and on-campus events. In September, we held our first in-person orientation since before the pandemic and welcomed 69 new students from 17 different countries across six continents. Nearly 70 percent of our students are international—an increase from last year. 

We are also thrilled to welcome two new lecturers in our program, Erina Iwasaki and Wendy Choo. See the story below. 

We are also starting the admissions cycle for the 2023-2023 academic year. We have held several webinars and the Fall 2023 applications are open. Please share our program information with your colleagues and students. Recommendations from our current students and alumni are the best way for us to attract amazing new students!

To help us to continue to share alumni profiles and updates for the newsletter, we ask that you please take this short survey that asks you to update your contact information and share your interests, and some good news to share with the community.

I hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter and the news about the great accomplishments of our fabulous students, faculty, and graduates.  For more regular updates about ICEd between issues of the newsletter, please follow us on Twitter at @TC_ICeducation and on Facebook.

Garnett Russell
Associate Professor and Director, International and Comparative Education Program (ICEd)
