Strategic Plan & Annual Reports


Strategic Plan

In 2014, the New School Board of Trustees approved a motion to divest from all fossil fuels and committed The New School to draw on our academic strengths and reflective practices, bringing together design, social research, and policy to address the challenges posed by climate change. The Tishman Center was then re-launched with its new mission and vision by Director Michelle DePass, dean of the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy and Tishman Professor of Environmental Policy and Management. We will work to create a world in which The New School and urban communities use integrated design, policy, and social justice approaches to address the environmental issues we face.

This Strategic Plan is organized according to three overarching goals:

1. Mobilize the 14,000 faculty, students, and staff at The New School to become fully aware service- oriented climate citizens.
2. Become a resource center for environmental justice.
3. Increase awareness of the Tishman Environment and Design Center and The New School as the place for design, policy, and social justice integration.
