Worker-Owners of The Cooperative New School

The Cooperative New School for Urban Studies and Environmental Justice (The CNS) is not only a school, but an institutional basis for community-based change and cooperative development. The faculty and staff will be worker-owners and the students will be consumer-owners. By January 2018, The CNS will be wholly owned by the faculty, staff, and students.
