Historical Note

The Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy was established in 1978 as the Graduate School of Management and Urban Professions (GSMUP). As of 2019, the school is known as the Milano School of Policy, Management and Environment. The Center for New York City Affairs (CNYCA), also known as the J.M. Kaplan Center for New York City Affairs, was founded in 1964 and became part of GSMUP in 1978.

Several of the original programs at GSMUP were originally administered by CNYCA: Urban Affairs and Policy Analysis, Human Resources and Manpower Development, Gerontological Services Administration, Health Services Administration, and Tourism and Travel Administration. CNYCA transferred its degree teaching function to GSMUP when the school was established but retained responsibility for a continuing education program in urban affairs and the publication of City Almanac (a bi-monthly publication) and  The Fiscal Observer (a bi-weekly publication).

In addition to the five programs transferred from CNYCA, GSMUP added programs in Fundraising Management (Summer 1978) and Management Auditing (Spring 1979). The programs offered by GSMUP did not remain static over the years. Some were combined, some were added and some were dropped, reflecting the changing research priorities of the School. By the time GSMUP was re-branded as the Graduate School of Management and Urban Policy in 1989, only four programs were offered: Urban Affairs and Policy Analysis, Human Resources Management, Health Services Administration, and Non-profit Management.

In 1996, university trustee Robert J. Milano's name was added to the School. In 2011, the school was renamed "The Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy," following the merger of the Robert J. Milano Graduate School of Management and Urban Professions with the graduate program in International Affairs, which up to then had been a separate entity. As of 2015, international affairs again split off from Milano to become the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs. At this time Milano was renamed the Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment. Both International Affairs and Milano are situated within the division known, as of 2019, as the Schools of Public Engagement.

Scope and Content of Collection

The Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Policy collection consists of administrative, promotional, and curricular materials, as well as publications by Milano faculty and researchers, and materials from Milano-sponsored events. The collection covers over fifty years in the history of the school, from its roots in the Center for New York City Affairs, which was founded in 1964, to the 2010s. The material in this collection is in a variety of formats: paper records, electronic files, and audiovisual recordings.

The collection is organized into four series: General, Center for New York City Affairs, Community Development Research Center, and Graduate Program in International Affairs.

The first series, General, contains administrative files, promotional material, handbooks, program assessments and development plans, and files related to faculty and staff. Reports, events, and conferences hosted by Milano, but not by a specific program within the school, are in this series. Also included are files from the Community Development Finance Lab, a Milano course that pairs students with community organizations, and the Milano Mangement Information Exchange (Milano MiX), a resource developed by Milano for community development corporations. The series includes electronic files from the offices of the Dean and Associate Dean for Student Affairs. Additionally, audiovisual material, including some event recordings and promotional videos, are found in this series.

The second series is material from the Center for New York City Affairs (CNYCA), the founding program of Milano. It includes course catalogs, promotional material, and publications. Materials from events hosted by the CNYCA include programs, photographs, and planning documents from the annual Fiorello H. La Guardia Awards Dinner, which honored individuals who made significant contributions to New York City. A recording of the dinner at which former President Bill Clinton received the award is also included. This series does not include issues of CNYCA's publication The Fiscal Observer or  City Almanac, which are found in the New School periodicals collection (NS.05.06.01).

The third series covers the work of Milano's Community Development Research Center (CDRC), an interdisciplinary research center focused on low-income urban neighborhoods. The bulk of this series consists of published reports sponsored by the CDRC. Assorted other documents include a program brochure, project summaries, and a grant application.

The fourth series contains documents from the Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA), which was established in 2001. As of 2019, this program is now known as the Julien J. Studley Graduate Programs in International Affairs, and is organizationally separate from Milano within the Schools of Public Engagement. This series includes promotional material, and administrative and curricular files. The bulk of this series is material from events and conferences sponsored by the GPIA. Also included is material from the Observatory on Latin America, a GPIA program that hosts events and conferences that foster understanding of and dialogue with Latin American countries.

Collection Inventory

Series I. General 1974-2014 

This series contains administrative files and material from events and conferences, reports, and promotional items not specific to a particular program within Milano. Files from the Community Development Finance Lab and Milano Management Information Exhange (Milano MiX) are also found in this series.

A large part of this series, the administrative files subseries, includes files from particular offices within the administration of Milano as well as program assessments, surveys, reports, and handbooks. Electronic files from the offices of Dean Lisa Servon, Associate Dean for Student Affairs Susan Morris, and Director of Program Development Suzy Stein are in this subseries. Also included here are program assessment reports, written both for external review bodies and for internal purposes, and program development files assessing the potential for new programs and the success of existing ones. Taken together, the program assessments and development files provide an understanding of Milano's evolution over a thirty year period.

Faculty and staff files also give a window into the curricular and administrative functioning of Milano. Included here are electronic files from Pier Camillo Rogers, an assistant professor of nonprofit management, and Leo Vazquez, Distance Learning Coordinator for Milano. Annual adjunct faculty reports, also in electronic format, consist of materials submitted by adjunct faculty to the administration and typically include syllabi, resumes, and biographies. Of particular interest in the faculty files are the materials on tenure and extended employment policies at Milano. These materials document the process by which Milano's leadership decided to implement an extended employment policy in lieu of traditional tenure in the late 1970s/early 1980s, and the response from faculty. These files include background research, proposals, memos, correspondence, and meeting notes. Also included here are review materials for faculty members seeking extended employment, which are restricted until fifty years from their date of creation.

Included in this series are files from two initiatives within Milano: the Community Development Finance Lab and the Milano Management Information Exchange (Milano MiX). The Community Development Finance Lab is a course offered at Milano in which students are paired with community based organizations to work with them on funding and program development challenges. The files from this course are mostly reports conducted as part of the Lab, as well as a promotional brochure, and event transcripts and recordings from annual Reality Check conferences. Milano MiX was a resource developed by Milano for community development corporations. Promotional material for this initiative is included in this series. Further information about Milano MiX, including extensive documentation of the planning and implementation of the program, are found in Suxy Stein's office files.

Also included in this series are photographs, realia, and audiovisual material. Recordings on VHS and audio cassette tapes have not been digitized, not has their content been reviewed.

Series II. Center for New York City Affairs 1965-2016 

The Center for New York City Affairs (CNYCA) was founded in 1964, fourteen years before the Graduate School of Mangement and Urban Professions was established. The CNYCA is a research institute focused on New York City that sponsors reports, events, and conferences. In its early years the CNYCA also gave courses focused on New York City, often taught by practitioners in urban affairs, policy, culture, and politics. Many prominent public officials, including Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, taught courses at CNYCA. As of 2019, CNYCA continues to operate as an applied research institute, but no longer offers courses.

This series contains press releases, course catalogs, and promotional material. The bulk of this series is reports and material from events sponsored by the CNYCA from the earliest years of the Center through the early 2000s. Of note are programs, photographs, and planning materials from the annual Fiorello H. La Guardia Award Dinner. This award was given to recognize an individual's contributions to New York City. A video recording of the award dinner at which President Bill Clinton was honored is included in this series.

Series III. Community Development Research Center (CDRC) 1989-2004 

The Community Development Research Center (CDRC) was founded in 1986 within the Graduate School of Management and Urban Professions and seems to have ceased operations around 2006. According to an archived version of the CDRC's website, the Center "raises awareness and conducts interdisciplinary research on community development strategies and policies intended to revitalize poor urban communities. It maintains data on community based efforts and examines the activities, programs and other factors that contribute to or limit their effectiveness." [1]

The bulk of this series is reports published by staff and researchers at the CDRC, spanning most of the years that the CDRC was in operation.
