The New School’s Continuing and Professional Education Announces New Leadership

Recently The New School announced the appointment of Joe Sloan as Executive Director and Dean of Continuing and Professional Education and Mariana Amatullo as Vice Provost and Academic Dean for Continuing and Professional Education (CPE).

Continuing and Professional Education’s (CPE) multifaceted learning experiences offer a range of  educational opportunities for learners of all ages with contemporary programming tailored to meet their interests and needs. It now brings together a suite of offerings—Continuing and Professional Education Programs, Parsons Entrepreneur Academy, Pre-College and Summer Intensive Programs, and Parsons Executive Education—to expand the reach of The New School’s unique approach to design, management, fine arts, and critical thinking.

“I’m excited to join The New School’s Continuing and Professional Education unit as Executive Director and Dean,” said Sloan. “The New School’s CPE is known for dynamic educational experiences in design, fine arts, management, the social sciences, and critical thinking that allow learners to advance their personal and professional interests, and I’m looking forward to expanding our reach and bringing our world-class interdisciplinary approach to a wider audience.”

“I am delighted to take on this new and important role at CPE and continue collaborating with my peers in the academic leadership of our institution to expand and innovate the great educational experiences we provide to a wide spectrum of students in CPE: executives, entrepreneurs, creatives, innovators, makers, and young learners,” said Amatullo. “Our programs embrace a culture of lifelong learning increasingly essential to contend with the global disruptions and profound inequities we are experiencing today– from the climate crisis to technological and demographic change and the transforming world of work. I am looking forward to facilitating new academic pathways and opportunities to make our rich learning environment accessible to a wider set of learners with programming relevant to the urgent societal needs that The New School is in a unique position to address with the talent and creativity of our community.”
