On March 19th, 2014 The New School held an open forum to discuss its possible divestment from fossil fuels. The discussion was not about whether or not the university would divest, but rather how it would divest; should it approach divestment as an immediate action or a long-term strategy.
The New School Free Press is The New School's university-wide, student-run publication. It is published with the support of The New School and the Literary Studies department of Eugene Lang College, and currently functions as a monthly publication with a daily presence on the web. The Free Press operates as a credit-based class – though we do accept contributions – and covers each of The New School's seven divisions, Greenwich Village, New York City, and the world.
