Education Network

Jessica Ochoa Hendrix ’09
Uncommon Schools

KIPP Foundation

We invite you to join us twice a year to meet with fellow alumni working in the education field. We will meet in person (or by conference call) to discuss topics such as:

  • Strategies for sustainable growth of charter schools
  • Performance management in education
  • Best practices in recruiting and training new teachers
  • Networking for political change in education reform policy

After each meeting, we will circulate notes with additional resources as an added benefit. Based on interest, we will also occasionally organize informal social get-togethers between these two annual events.

This group will initially target Columbia Business School alumni but will always welcome professionals outside of the School’s community. If you would like to join this group, please contact us and one of the alumni ambassadors will get in touch with you.
