• InterculturalThe Office of Intercultural Support (OIS) works with students of diverse backgrounds to build a community at The New School. OIS offers programs, workshops, services, and individual counseling to support and promote the varying world perspectives at The New School.

    The staff works closely with recognized student organizations and the Social Justice Committee. The OIS also oversees the functions of the Higher Education Opportunity Program and the Student Ombuds office. We believe that honoring each other’s differences reinforces our own personal freedom.
