Judith Burton is Named TC’s Macy Professor of Education

“I’m deeply grateful to be given this great honor, and it’s particularly significant because I spend all my time in a building endowed by the Macy family and in a gallery that carries their name – so it’s almost as if it’s coming home,” Burton said. “As far as I know, I’m also the first person in the arts to be thus honored at TC. It allows me to be a reflection of TC’s support and appreciation for the centrality of the... arts as part of the educational process.”
