Sustainability, Environment, and Science
Sustainability is a core component to The New School’s mission. Through the Tishman Environment and Design Center (TEDC), the university’s hub for interdisciplinary research, scholars and experts in design, policy, and social justice advance just and sustainable outcomes to pressing environmental issues. TEDC administers the university’s academic science programs. Our experts in these fields go beyond natural ecology and resource conservation to emphasize urban ecosystems, sustainable design, and public policy.
