IPK Senior Fellows serve as advisors to the Institute for Public Knowledge, offering direction for new and ongoing programming and research. Frequently, Senior Fellows direct specific research activities at the Institute.
IPK Scholars are graduate students invited from within New York University to coordinate various research activities of the Institute, as well as Visiting Scholars from other institutions of higher education and non-governmental organizations.
POIESIS Fellows have been selected to participate in the POIESIS Fellowship, an interdisciplinary, international collaborative research project based at the IPK.
Alumni of the IPK have worked at the Institute in some capacity at some point, but are no longer actively affiliated.
