• Our responsibility as a university is to make space for educational dialogue for our community to better understand complex and challenging issues. We believe deeply in supporting a healthy and safe learning and working environment for all members of our community, prioritizing the emotional and physical safety of our students, faculty, and staff. We expect members of the New School community to act in ways that are consistent with our core values of respect, tolerance, and dignity.

    We encourage you to familiarize yourselves with the resources and information on this page and to visit our Campus Safety website to learn more about safety preparedness on our campus.

    Our commitment to freedom of speech may be found in our Free Exchange of Ideas and Freedom of Artistic Expression policies. This commitment extends to our staff and students, with both the interim president and provost reaffirming this commitment.

    Community Standards and Policies

  • Community Dialogues

    The university is committed to providing space to engage in open exchanges of ideas and to inviting our community members to actively listen in constructive and inclusive dialogue across a variety of subjects.


    Our Faculty Center will continue to offer resources and seek to provide additional faculty training opportunities to support educational forums and classroom dialogue. We encourage our faculty and academic deans to continue to collaborate and engage in offering a diversity of educational opportunities across the university. 

    Faculty in need of support for Teaching and Learning can email thefacultycenter@newschool.edu and are encouraged to review these resources for faculty.


    If staff are looking to form or join an employee affinity group during this time, please contact Ilana Levitt and Human Resources will help facilitate the organization of a group based on community interest.
