Ranked by U.S. News and World Report time and again as the university with the largest number of international students, The New School prides itself on the diverse background of its student body. The faculty is no different. On Independence Day, the Carnegie Corporation of New York celebrated Nina Khrushcheva for her scholarly achievements as a “Great Immigrant: The Pride of America,” an annual tradition for the organization. She was honored along with 42 other immigrants with a full-page advertisement in The New York Times. Khrushchev was honored alongside other notable immigrants including author Jamaica Kincaid, visual artist Shirin Neshat, philanthropist Aso Tavitian and journalists Doualy Xaykaothao and Mohamad Bazzi.
Khrushcheva is a senior fellow of the World Policy Institute and associate professor at the Julian J. Studley Graduate Program of International Affairs. The granddaughter of Soviet premiere Nikita Khrushchev, she is currently at work on a book The Lost Khrushchev: A Family Journey into the Gulag of the Russian Mind.
