  2. Nothig else with me

  3. Hi,
    I’m the director of the TESOL and Applied Linguistics Programs at Teachers College, CU. I’ve been a faculty member at Columbia for 15 years and just bumped into this site.

    We have several events during the year that might interest your members and I see that several of your events would also interest students and faculty in our programs at TC.

    Is there someone on this list to whom I can seen our events announcements?

    James E. Purpura, Ph.D.
