Board of Trustees

 Board of Trustees

The New School is governed by a Board of Trustees drawn from the ranks of leaders in civil society. The Trustees’ capacity to chart a course for the university’s future is exemplified by the roles they have in business, education, philanthropy, government, media, and other fields.

The Board meets regularly throughout the year and participates actively in the rich array of public programs, performances, and university ceremonies that characterize The New School.
