The Klingenstein Center is the premier graduate program for independent and international school leadership. From the start, our carefully designed programs have integrated the rich resources and educational research of Teachers College and Columbia University while making the most of the dynamic academic, cultural and economic opportunities that abound in New York City. All programs focus on instructional leadership, collaboration and teamwork, a commitment to social justice & diversity, ethics and reflective practice.
The Center’s programs specifically address the challenges and opportunities inherent in independent and international school leadership while providing a broad perspective on high quality education in all its forms. Discussions, readings, projects, internships, visits and distinguished guest lecturers offer insight into ways of thinking that enhance leadership for independent and international schools today and in the future.
