Our Vision

Vision Road Sign with dramatic blue sky and clouds.

Our vision aligns with shifts in the global economy, society, and environment, which animate our mission and our values:

  • Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the statusĀ  both in what and how we teach and in the intellectual ambitions of the School itself
  • Social engagement, orienting students’ academic experience to help them become critically engaged citizens dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.

The New School must embrace these principles and innovate to address shifts in the global economy, society, and environment that require individuals to grapple with complex problems, pursue more fluid and flexible career pathways, and collaboratively create change.
