History

In 1964, the J. M. Kaplan Center for New York City Affairs was founded as the first teaching and research center in the United States devoted to the study of a single metropolitan area. In 1975, under the leadership of Dean Henry Cohen, the Kaplan Center evolved into the Robert J. Milano Graduate School of Management and Urban Policy (now Milano The New School for Management and Urban Policy), which was named in honor of the former New School trustee Robert J. Milano (1912–2000), who had also been a member of the advisory board of the J.M. Kaplan Center. Curriculum is structured to encourage creative thinking in aid of progressive social, economic, and political change in the public, private, and nonprofit arenas.

The CDFP equips professionals with the business skills they will need combined with the urban policy and non-profit management skills that are the core of the Milano experience.

From this program, new expanded research, university courses and public events were established at The New School and has been transformed into what is today known as The Observatory on Latin America (OLA).
