The New School Collaboratory is a university-wide research and design initiative launched formally in June 2013 with funding from the Rockefeller Foundation. The Collaboratory aims to enhance the Universitys efforts to foster meaningful, efficacious, and sustainable engagements with communities and external partners, as well as making these projects visible for evaluation in an academic context. The Collaboratory seeks to identify the challenges of and best practices for collaboration from the perspectives of all stakeholders, including communities, institutional partners, students, and faculty. Additionally, the Collaboratory acts as a university incubator to develop tools and systems that can enhance university-wide efforts to achieve excellence in socially engaged learning and public scholarship.

Last year, the Collaboratory launched its website. We hope this site provides an online space for students, faculty and external partners to:

Discover and learn about how we approach socially engaged learning and public scholarship at The New School;

Showcase diverse representations of socially engaged projects, pedagogies, approaches, research, and resources across The New School; and

Connect and collaborate across the university and with external stakeholders

The coming year is an exciting turning point for this project. The Collaboratory site will be formally soft launched this Spring semester, we will be growing the website content and shaping a capacity building initiative that addresses vital gaps in communication, knowledge dissemination, and collaboration across the university.
