SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - New College of Florida has kicked off its search for a new president. The College’s new leader will succeed President Donal O’Shea, who retires in June.

The New College Board of Trustees has appointed a search committee led by Board Chair Mary Ruiz, a 1978 graduate of New College, to conduct the national search for the college’s sixth president.

“Our next president will join New College at a pivotal moment in our school’s 61-year history,” Ruiz said. “We seek an inspiring, visionary leader who will be a champion of liberal arts education and New College’s distinctive role in the higher education landscape of our state and our nation.”
