The Consortium for Transdisciplinarity (CT/d) provides a structure and set of opportunities that allow students, faculty, and partners to realize the potential in The New School’s unique structure: an art and design school alongside an elite graduate
school of social sciences and humanities. It is designed to activate and coordinate transdisciplinary opportunities by opening an expansive and synchronized institutional space for transdisciplinary research, teaching and learning, and community action.
The consortium brings together the proven strengths of three key transdisciplinary units that bridge the persisting university divide between design and the academic social sciences and humanities. By integrating these active and prominent units—a research
lab (GIDEST), a teaching lab (MFA Transdisciplinary Design), and an applied lab
for community-based projects (Parsons DESIS Lab)—into a new constellation, CT/d creates a cross-divisional ecosystem of research, teaching, and social action.
