According to U.S. News & World Report, New College is ranked the fifth best Public National Liberal Arts College in the USA. Who knew we had such an esteemed educational institution in Sarasota?

The history of New College goes back to the late 1950s when, at the behest of the local Chamber of Commerce, citizens banded together to create a local college to complement the growing city’s art museum, symphony orchestra and theaters. The private new college was designed by a group of educators who believed in the power of the mind and wanted to free both students and faculty from the limits of lock-step curriculum and a focus on credit hours and a GPA.

Dr. Patricia Okker, President, New College of Florida, will join us to outline her vision for the future of New College. What does the future hold for New College? And why are partnership and resilience more important than ever?
