The New School for Social Research is the graduate division of The New School. Located in Manhattan, New York City, it was founded in 1933 under the name of The University in Exile to be a haven for scholars who had been dismissed from teaching and government positions by totalitarian regimes in Europe. The University in Exile was initially funded by Hiram Halle and the Rockefeller Foundation. It was later renamed the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, and bore this name until changing to its present one in 2005.

Among non-economists, the NewSchool acquired the Gestalt psychologist Max Werthheimer, sociologist Max Ascoli, philosopher Leo Strauss, political scientist Max Lerner and the dramatist Erwin Piscator.
The post-war years were made difficult for the NewSchool by the return of scholars back to Europe or their move to other American universities.
In the 1990s, Lance Taylor and Duncan Foley joined the NewSchool economics department and the Center for Economic Policy Analysis (CEPA) was founded to further the links between the NewSchool's unique and refreshing perspective and the economic world.
