• Strategic Plan

  • The New School’s Strategic Plan ensures the academic strength and distinction of the university. The Strategic Plan for 2013–2018 reflects many months of thinking and discussion across the university at all levels. It articulates the mission and vision for the university and the major goals and guiding principles that will direct the university for the coming years.

    The Strategic Plan breaks the university’s goals into five broad categories: 1) student success; 2) academic programs and quality; 3) global education; 4) external profile; and 5) infrastructure.
