Guidelines for University Communications and Media Relations

Media Relations

The university’s Communications and Media Relations Office serves as both a campus-based news bureau and The New School’s most direct connection to the external news media. Our team builds awareness for the university’s mission, vision, and values; promotes new research and initiatives; showcases faculty and student accomplishments; and responds to media inquiries about university-related news. We work with journalists from news organizations around the world on a daily basis to highlight compelling New School stories and respond to media inquiries for information or perspective on topics or issues related to the university.

To effectively interact with journalists, we rely on our close partnerships with colleagues across the university, who inform our work and play a critical role in partnering for a successful outcome.

All media requests must be coordinated through the Communications and Media Relations Office.

  • For faculty and staff: We engage with faculty and staff seeking to promote university courses, projects, or thought leadership. Our team will work directly with the faculty or staff member to assess the opportunity and coordinate a response, interviews, and/or filming or photography on campus.
  • For journalists: We offer media resources and information about The New School to assist with stories about the university.

We welcome your inquiries about The New School. Please email us at

Internal and Crisis Communications

The Communications and Media Relations Office also serves the community during crises. We advise university leadership and our schools, units, and departments on strategic communications. During an emergency or crisis, we develop the university's response, coordinate communication within the university, and share information externally to media.
