Excellence in Teaching Initiative

In May 2014, the Garfinkel family made an endowed gift to launch Graded’s Excellence in Teaching Initiative. Since 1920, Graded has attracted top educators who seek an inspiring and intellectually challenging community. By supporting faculty salaries and providing professional development opportunities, the Excellence in Teaching Endowment allows Graded to improve student learning by recruiting, developing, and retaining the world’s best teachers.

“Students becoming more curious, more empathetic, and more inspired… That is the sole reason we all show up each day. We are all, in our own way, whether it be through cooking, nursing, cleaning, or teaching, creating the space for 'education' to happen. We are all, in our own way, trying to create a better world and more hopeful future.”
