• Student Leadership
  • Welcome to the home of Student Leadership and Involvement (SLI) at The New School. SLI supports the New School's educational mission by creating opportunities for students to have rewarding interactions and make connections outside of the classroom. We encourage you to become an active member of the university community by joining or starting a student organization, applying to participate in the Emerging Leaders Program for first- and second-year students, signing up for a recreation activity, or joining us on a service trip. We offer many opportunities to help you develop your potential to become a leader on campus or just be part of the action! To learn more about how to get involved and the many opportunities available to help you develop your potential, visit NarwhalNation

    Keep an eye out for our weekly newsletter to be in the know about our events and activities throughout the year and to learn about discounts and NYC offerings. If you find that you're not receiving the newsletter in your New School email inbox, email us to sign up today!


    We are open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m., and Friday, 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m., throughout the academic year with the exception of university holidays. Stop by and learn more about what's going on and how you can get involved!
