Harry Van Arsdale Jr. Center for Labor Studies
Our faculty and staff provide a combination of in-person, group study and online courses, offering an opportunity to work toward a degree through studies that focus on work, workers and the working-class presence — social, cultural and institutional — in a historical and contemporary context.
Our center is located at Hudson Street in Manhattan. Our other locations include Joint Board-IBEW Local 3 Headquarters in Flushing, Rochambeau School in White Plains, UA Plumbers Local Union 1 Training Center in Long Island City, and UFT Teacher Training Centers located in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island.
Labor studies is an interdisciplinary inquiry into the working-class presence and its forms that draws upon both the social sciences and the humanities.
