Message from Our Dean

Dean Cecelia Traugh

Looking for work with meaning? The field of education holds this kind of promise. The possibilities are varied: teaching children or adolescents in classrooms; working with adults as a school leader; nurturing the development of infants and toddlers; supporting children and parents in hospital settings; finding ways to help people engage with the worlds contained in museums or gardens. All these settings offer the opportunity for relationship, deep connection, and on-going learning—the opportunity for meaningful work and for meaningful social change. At Bank Street College, this vision of education is alive and thriving.

I invite you to join us. Come to the place that for over 100 years has prepared children and adults to enact the humane values and practices that make a difference in individual lives and society.
