HistoryEdit

Founded in 1890 as the School of Pedagogy, the School soon added courses in psychology, counseling, art, and music. In 1910, it established the first US university chair in experimental education. During the 1920s, enrollment increased from 990 to more than 9500 students. The Education Building on Washington Square opened in 1930 and still serves as the School's home today.

The School was named the Steinhardt School of Education in 2001, in recognition of a $10 million donation, the largest it has ever received, from Michael and Judy Steinhardt. In 2007, the school was renamed the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development to reflect the diversity of its academic programs.
