Community agreements, also called classroom or discussion agreements, are very useful for creating a respectful and supportive learning environment. Some faculty share a pre-made list, others invite students to co-create the agreements by offering a handful to start and then asking students what other issues all in the class should agree to. Community agreements are most often established at the beginning of the semester but they can be introduced and updated at any time. –

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 was enacted to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for correction of inaccurate or misleading statements. In addition, it gives students some control over the disclosure of information from education records.

Please read The New School’s land acknowledgement at the top of large events/trainings or print it in an event program:

We would like to acknowledge with respect the indigenous people on whose ancestral lands The New School now stands. We are gathered on the unceded land of the Lenape peoples. We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Lenape community, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. The New School also acknowledges that it was founded upon exclusions and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land this institution is located. This acknowledgment demonstrates a commitment to beginning the process of working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.

Faculty and staff will receive university mail via a secure, digital mail system and packages will be available for pick-up at centrally located automated package lockers on campus. See Mail and Package Services for more information.
