Prof Basu receives Early Career Achievement award from Columbia Teachers College

Posted on Apr 20, 2013

On April 13, 2013, in a packed TC luncheon event in New York, as part of its 125th anniversary celebration, the Alumni Association of Teachers College posthumously honored Prof Sreyashi Jhumki Basu (PhD’06) with a career achievement award for her path-breaking work in Democratic Science Teaching. 

Prof Christopher Emdin, Dr. Basu’s colleague at TC who also serves on the board of Jhumki Basu Foundation, delivered a deeply personal and laudatory citation which brought the audience to their feet. Then, accepting the award on Jhumki’s behalf, her mother, Radha Basu, spoke from the heart, and the audience was moved to tears by Jhumki’s last words “There is so much left to do.”
