More than 260 full-time faculty in 11 separate academic departments form the academic core of our School. Steinhardt is best understood through its emphasis on high-quality applied scholarship and the delivery of pre-professional and professional programs befitting a Research I university. The research and applied work that our faculty engage in is based on a view of human development that is holistic, embracing intellectual, psycho-social, creative, and physical dimensions. Our school’s programs and departments in culture, education, and human development provide the framework for our hallmark collaborative and interdisciplinary approach. The work of our full-time faculty is supported by a carefully selected corps of highly trained scholars and professionals who serve as adjunct faculty.
