With a history of leadership and innovation in art and design, the performing arts, the social sciences, and numerous other disciplines, The New School is uniquely positioned to engage international universities, organizations, and governments in joint initiatives and projects.
Our global engagement began with the launch in 1921 of Parsons Paris, the first overseas campus established by an American institution of higher education. Since then, our international engagement has expanded through partnerships with other institutions around the globe.
Our approach is collaborative: working with our partners to identify points of confluence and opportunities to apply our competencies, adapting to local environments, promoting transnational dialogue, and gaining greater cultural fluency and insights through these reciprocal relationships.
We seek to build productive relationships founded upon mutual understanding and respect, as well as a commitment to sustainability, social justice, progressive values, urban equity, and access.
