discussing the most important issues of the day. In 1919, they founded The New School for Social Research. Now formally named The New School, the university has grown to include five colleges, with courses that reflect the founders’ interest in the emerging social sciences, international affairs, liberal arts, history, and philosophy, as well as art, design, management, and performing arts.

Over the decades, some of the finest minds of the 20th century have pioneered courses in new areas of social sciences and liberal arts at The New School. Faculty members and visiting scholars have included Harold Laski, Franz Boas, and John Maynard Keynes. In 1948, W.E.B. Du Bois taught the first course in AfricanAmerican history and culture ever taught at a university. Around the same time, Karen Horney and Erich Fromm introduced their new approaches to psychoanalysis. From 1954 to 1978, Margaret Mead taught courses in anthropology. The New School’s groundbreaking courses attracted students from around the world, including the young Shimon Peres. In 1962, Gerda Lerner offered the first university-level course in women’s history.
