Academic Master Plan Take part in New College's Future. By Colin Boyle '89 On January 29, 2008 the New Col lege Board of Trustees approved the 2008-2018 Academic Master Plan. ew College is going through a period of radical change, brought on by its recent independence, the retirement of man) long-tenured faculty and the planned growth to 800 students. Thts master plan i Je igned to be "a road map for navigating the terrain of academic change O\'er the next 10 years." It's the product of seven months' work by hundreds of people, and it lays out six main goab: curriculum en hancement, faculty professional devel opment, increasmg diversity, increasing the usc of technology, managing growth and enhancmg community decision makmg. The Master Plan was built with input from staff, faculty, students and alumni. It began over the summer with meetings designed to define issue and values, followed in the autumn with con ensus testing of a number of po sible strategies to addre s the issues that carne out of the summer meet ing. one of the trategies included in the final document had less than 85 percent support of the facu lty. An important part of the process was taking a critica l look at the "pillars" of the New College experience: the thesis, tutorials, the contract sy tem, narrative evaluations and I 'P All of these pil lars were reaffirmed, though each had problem that need addressing. The thesis was reaffirmed a an important part of the New College experience. One prob lem that needs to be examined is that the workload for baccalaureate exams is pread unevenly among faculty. There is also a desire to "deve lop proposa l s for standads and models for 1.lternatives to the normal written senior thesis." Narrative evaluations are "a par ticularly di tinctive and valu ed part of New College's academ i c program," according to the report. They are also very time-consuming, and there is a belief that a poorly written evaluation is of no more \'alue than the letter grades they replace. There is a desire to "revive a sense of commitment to narrative evaluations," including faculty discus ions, mentoring of new faculty and holding up examples of exemplary evaluations. The advising and contract ystem will sec similar chan.ges, with doc cr evaluation of faculty advising, better de\'elopeJ standards, and a possible mid-semester evaluation where ad\'isors will be alerted if their students are do ing unsatisfa 'tory work. Tutorials will see clarify ing their purpose and clarifying the role of faculty in the various types of mtorial (internship faculty-led, student-led, etc.). ISPs will see simtlar dtscusstons on the role of faculty as well as the intro duction of optional four-week seminars designed for first-year students. Alumare a key part of this plan. The master plan make pecific mention of pre erving the close-knit sense of com munity valued by so many students and alumnae/i. It alo asks that the New College Alumnae/i As ociation put together a directory of alums, organized by profession, who arc interested in ponsoring internships at their place of work. It asks alums to be a resource for study-abroad opportunities. Finally, it engages alums to lead ISPs on topics of student interest.

L....___--!...A=LUM PRO FILE The Alma Mater C nnection Coach exec and alumna Felice Schulaner '78 returns to Sarasota. After a high-potrered career in human resources for Coach, Felice Schulaner '78, retired and moved back to Sarasota in No vember 2006, where he and her husband, Dennis, remodeled a arasota chool of Architecture home on Siesta Key. FeUce immediately reconnected with New College and lws taken a leadership role in NCF's Power of Women series, has become a major donor and was recently appointed to the New College Board of Trustees. Her retire ment from Coach was short-lived, however. Her uccessor departed, and oach's CEO a ked her to return until a replacement can be found. Now Felice splits time between her Siesta Key home and New York City, where she oversees close to 7,000 employees in retail stores in the United tates and Japan. Q. What attracted you to New Col lege? I'm from ew Jersey originally, and I came to New College becau e the whole approach to learnin g was very appealing-it focuse on the student's individuality and accountability for their own education. I wa excited about the opportunity to work cloely with top-tier profe or and go to chool with exceptionally smart tu denr-. I al o liked the idea of being in ara ota, which i much nicer than ew Jer ey in the winter. l got a chol arship and graduated in 1981 with a B.A. in economics. Q. Where did you go after graduat ing? Initially I thought I wa going to get my Ph.D. in economics from Vanderbi lt But not long into that experience, I realized that I didn't really want to have a career in academia. I interviewed with ears' management training pr gram because I thought retail was an interesting busine I wa accepted into the program, which was based in Orlando, a nd did that for a few years. But if I was going to be a retailer, I needed to be in New York. I relocated there and worked at Macy's in Herald Square as the men' department manager. ix month into that as ign ment, the per-onnel manager thought l would be good in per onnel and asked ifl was intere ted. I took to it and have been in HR ever ince. In January 2000 I started at Coach, and I've been there ever since. Q. What is your position at Coach? I was senior vice pre ident of HR (and am now acting head of HR), so I'm head of the HR function and re spon ible for all the "people element of the busine trategy-recruitment, employee relation:;, learning and devel opment, compen atton, international HR ... all of those things fell under my agen y. I tried to retire in ovember 2006, and had hired omeone to repla e me, but, he was there a year almo. t to the day when she re igned to do philanthropic work in icaragua. o the CEO called and a ked if I vmuld come back until we can find another head of HR. The full-time assignment began in January, so it's relatively new, but it feel like I never left. I'm in ew York every other week and in Florida on the alternating week Q. What have you learned from be ing in HR? I think there's an intere. ting dynamic at oach-what a EO once said is that Coach is a mall company with large sales that we manage actively. We like to keep a small-company feel. We believe that people arc the competitive advantage. Companie that are thinking about people a their true a sets, that work really hard to create environ ments with high level of employee satisfaction, that inve t in employee development and that have reward programs in place that motivate people to the right kind of behavior will ultimately be more succe ful. Small compa nie hould a k them elves how they can become the em ployer of choice in thi environment. You don't have to create giant learning lMB S PRI G 2008 5


and development departments; but if a small company is committed to inve ting in their people, they might bring outide trainer to work on kilL development, for example. I'm not that they put in expcn ive HR y tem but through performance management and performance apprais als people can understand where they arc uccessfu l and how they can better contribute to the greater good. These things can be relatively low-tech; mall companies hould not refrain from thinking about including ome of these clements in their strategies. You also have to attract, develop and retain. In tough people go right to the "don't pay people" mentality-that's the wrong deciswn to make, because you're going to lose the be t people and not have anyone else to do the work. I think there are four things that employees look for. One, a ense of accomplishment-that they do good work and feel good about con tribution. Two, a sense of influence that they have a point of view and can participate in deciding how they do their work the way they do. Three, that they feel rewarded for their effort It' not always ju t about money, it can be recognition, or a pat on the backemployers can give omeone a day off if they did omethi ng really exceptional. Four, that there's an environment that people re pect. It behoove leader of organization to think about how they can get their employees to participate and feel good about their contributions, whether by money or other things. I've known people who made ton of money but were miserable, becau e they didn't have tho e other elements. Companies need to think about how they can bal ance rho e thing to motivate people in good and bad business cycle Particu larly in down cycles, employee who are left are carrying a greater burden than before, so it's even more important to make the survivors feel good about their contributions. There aren't very many companies that can run without people. Your best people are the most 6 .'JMBU PRL G 2008 employable-they're the one who will find alternative employment as op posed to tho e who are le talented. Q. What brought you back to Sara ota? I fell madly in love with Sara ota when 1 went to college here and always knew I would come back. For the firt 15 years of our marriage, 1 was working on my huband to convince him that it would be a good idea. He wasn't ,1 hard sdl when we finally del ided to do it. When I went to college here and became familiar w1th the arasota chool ot Architecture, I decided that was part of my dream, too-o we bought an A hou. e. People who build these very mthern-oriented homes here don't make sense to me. Our house is very appropriate for us. We love our home and we love living here. Q. What is your involvement with New College? I was just elected to the ew College Foundation's board of trustee, and I've been on the steering committee for Power of Women. The objective IS to expo, e New College tudent to talented, interesting, accompli hed women in arasora and the environs, to give them a ense of vhat their careers could be like for them po t-grad and to help craft mentor hips between ew College students and community women and alum That's a project of mme. Q. How did New College help you in the busine world? When I came to ew College, I had a relatively traditional high chool education in suburban New Jer ey. I wa n't really exposed to the kind of educational experience that New Col lege provided. I learned how to think at New College, to evaluate concepts and craft new ideas. That wa catalytic in my life. I learned not to take what was in my textbooks a gospel-! used it as a jumping-off point. New Col lege also helped me build confidence in communications. When you have really mall clas e you need to partici pate. You can't hide behind 50 or 60 other people in your cia You have to prepare and be clear and coherent and per uasivc, and rho e kills you learn by doing. ew College provided that. You also write a lot, o you develop better writing skill -both verbal and written communications kills are enhanced at ew College. Because the college is so mall, there aren't a lot of club and sports, so you're thrust into adulthood a little faster. It's really part of the ara ota community. We used Sarasota as our campu It was really, really tiny when I went there-only 350 students. When I went into the work world, I had a bit of a head start. I knew how to make my own decisions and man age my own experience. I could make choices about how to spend my time and money. ew College really empha sizes your own responsibility-the motto is "a student 1 respon ible for their own education." There's a sense of ownership; no one's going to make you do your homework, you're not going to be forced to take certain classe, there are no required cla e -because there's o little tructurc, you learn a lot of elf discipline. Q. How many Coach bags do you own? l have a lot of Coach bags. Ifl buy one, I have to give one away. I probably have two or three dozen now, but over the years I've had a lot more. When you work at Coach, they expect you to buy the new bag. You get a good di count, but eventually storage pace become the i sue. How many brown ones or black ones do you need? At lea t it' a beautiful product! Interviewed by Megan McDonald, an editor at Sarasota Magazine and Biz941 in Sarasota.

LOVE CONNECTIONS SCHOOL OF LOVE Not all the chemistry sparked at New College happens in the nat sci labs. Since this issue is all about connections, we can't ignore the many love affairs and marriages New College has spawned during its 48 years. We discovered 390 of you who found your soul mate and partner in life in another New Col lege alum. That's 195 couples for whom New College is a bond, and let's face it, that's a pretty strong glue. Four couples shared their stories with us. PERFECT FIT Kent '78 and Elizabeth '80 Simendinger As the ong saxs, "Five foot two, eye of blue ... Ye I had een that 'gal," through chance encounter walking along ide my roommate amid t the Pei dorm (he may have been trying to woo Elizabeth) me an increa ingly intere ted, earnest by tander. At a foot taller than her, I was certainly able to confirm the five-foot-two decription, but for quite a while, verifying eye color was another matter entirely. Perhaps with Elizabeth being a very hy first-year student, perhaps with that eem ingly awkward height difference, or perhaps he simply couldn't look up without laughing at my gangly third-year self, replete with a stubbornly futile attempt at a mustache. But tarring with my tagalong attendance at her 19th birthday party on Feb. 5, 198l(complete with Elizabeth receiving a live rabbit as a gift from friends), I sought ways to turn random encounters into frequent conver ation (nay, flirta tion-1 was the wooing roommate now). Mutual Valentine card exchange Kent and Eli zabeth on followed, and then a graduat ion day 1981 fir t date on the la t day CONTINENTAL DRIFT Vince '75 and Claudia '75 Koloski Long, long ago, in that epic time known as the 1970 two lapsed Catholic migrated via different routes from the frozen tundra of the upper Midwe t to the sun-bles ed lands of Southwest Florida (alas-gorgeou terrain plagued by fire ants, giant cockroaches, mosqui toes, and sand purs).

Spark and chemistry flew (the do est I ever got to a natural sci ence course at New College), especially when we managed eye contact for a few second Elizabeth wa hy, but very smart, funny, beau tiful, alluring and compelling. We remain thank ful every day for the NC environ ment that fo tered fortuitous chance (and not so chance) Kent and Eli zabeth in 2007 on-campus encounters (our thanks especially evident through yearly donations to the Alumnae/ i A ociation of course!). We remem ber tho e feelings of freedom, possibility and endless opportunity that brought us together. We celebrated our 20th wedding anniver ary a year ago with a journey down memory lane, traveling to Sarasota over Memo rial Day weekend. Despite the spate of construction everywhere, as we sauntered through both side of cam pus, we saw much the same core structure, strength and pirit of New College, and our own indelible early rela tionship memories. Our youth, love and pa sion was till alive and well all around us, and most importantly, it was all clearly visible looking fully, and at length, into each other's eye Kent Willen, fresh from Catholic board ina school, vowed never to follow such a restrictive (perhaps even monas tic) path again. For both, the NC environment offered freedom, friendship and intellectual stimulation beyond com pare. Arriving in 1975, Vince and Claudia were part of the ( ometimes reviled) first clas at the state univer ity version of NC. The two pur ued their separate ways through the moras of free-thinking, late 1970 album-oriented rock, disco detritus and emerging punk rock culture that characterized the college in tho e distant days. They shared many common interests-art, cience, music, fantasy, science fiction, comic theater, dancing, and J
