The New School is a renowned university in New York City, located mostly around Greenwich Village. From its founding in 1919 and for most of its history, The New School was known as the New School for Social Research. Between 1997 and 2005 it was known as New School University. The university and each of its colleges were re-branded to their current names in 2005. Some 9,300 students are enrolled in graduate and undergraduate degree programs in a variety of disciplines, including the social sciences, liberal arts, humanities, architecture, fine arts, design, music, drama, finance, psychology and public policy. The school is renowned for its avant-garde teaching and houses the well-known international think tank, the World Policy Institute. Parsons The New School for Design is the university's highly-competitive art school. The graduate school of The New School began in 1933 as the University in Exile, an emergency rescue program for threatened scholars in Europe. In 1934 it was chartered by the New York state board of regents and its name was changed to the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, a name it would keep until 2005 when it was renamed New School for Social Research. The current president of the New School is former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE), who assumed his role in 2000. Kerrey drew mixed praise and criticism for his divisive streamlining of the university, as well as censure for his support of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, generally opposed by the university's traditionally left-wing faculty. In 2004, Kerrey appointed Arjun Appadurai as Provost. Appadurai resigned as provost in early 2006, but retains a tenured faculty position at the New School. The current provost is Benjamin Lee.
