  • President’s Leadership Team

  • In 1919, a group of visionaries designed a new kind of university, one where rigorous scholarship and creativity could be world changing. Today The New School’s leadership carries forward that mission. The President's Leadership Team (PLT) is committed to leading, driving, and aligning teams and work to achieve The New School’s highest strategic priorities, which flow from the intersection of our distinctiveness, our values of equity and justice, and the times.

    The PLT is guided by the following shared principles:

    • We will be bold and ambitious, creating opportunities to position The New School to strive for the leading edge.
    • We will focus on what makes The New School unique and distinctive and nurture, advance, and elevate this differentiation.
    • We will model deep and inclusive community, building engagement and bringing to bear the full range of perspectives, values, and expertise across The New School.
    • We will leverage and adhere to good operating practices and processes across all areas of our work.
    • We will empower distributed ownership and accountability to build a culture of equity, inclusion, effectiveness, agility, and agency.
  • Take The Next Step
