The college said Monday that Galliano will teach a master class that will address the "challenges and complications" of leading a design house.
Parsons said the spring workshop will give students the opportunity to have a "frank conversation" with the designer.
Galliano was creative director at Christian Dior when he was fired in 2011 for an anti-Semitic rant, which is a crime in France. He's currently involved in a lawsuit against his former employer.
He began a temporary artist residency at the studio of Oscar de la Renta in New York earlier this year.
The Parsons statement said Galliano has tried to make amends for his behaviour.Suggest a correction
