  • Web_Version-20180906_University_In_Exile_051

    The New University in Exile Consortium is an expanding group of universities and colleges publicly committed to assisting the increasing number of academics living under threat today. Consortium members are motivated by the belief that the academic community has both the responsibility and the capacity to assist persecuted and endangered scholars everywhere and to protect the intellectual capital that is jeopardized when universities and scholars are under assault.

    The New School for Social Research was the home of the original University in Exile, which was created in 1933 by The New School’s first president, Alvin Johnson, in response to the growing threat of Nazism in Europe. It was The New School’s own history as the site of the first University in Exile that led us to once again look for ways to assist the many scholars who are threatened by conflict and persecution.

    The consortium currently has 11 members, including Barnard College; Brown University; Columbia University; Connecticut College; Georgetown University; George Mason University; Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; Trinity College; Wayne State University; Wellesley College; and The New School, which serves as the convener, organizer, and administrative base of the initiative. The consortium was conceived and is currently led by Professor Arien Mack, Alfred and Monette Marrow Professor of Psychology at The New School for Social Research. It was founded in collaboration with other New School faculty, including:

    • T. Alexander Aleinikoff, University Professor and director of the Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility
    • Richard Bernstein, Vera List Professor of Philosophy at The New School for Social Research
    • Elzbieta Matynia, professor of sociology and liberal studies and director of the Transregional Center for Democratic Studies

    We hope to expand our membership to include many other universities and colleges. For information about becoming a consortium member, visit newuniversityinexileconsortium.org/membership/how-to-join.
