new COLLeGe nimBUS Volume 9, Number 3 Summer1993 Warden Focuses on Corntnunity NC Dean & Warden Micbalson asks questions, sparks dialogue, fosters involvement by Matt Posner '87 big part of Gordon "Mike" AMichalson's ideas about New College has to do with the relationship between liberal arts and community "We are privileged here," he says "and we tend to forget that." Most New College alumnae/i will probably recognize the privileges of which he speaks : an open-ended liberal education, of course and naturally, stimulating company "Liberal arts colleges produce unique individu als," he explains ''with refined sen sibilities As he sees it, a successful liberal arts education is a weapon against parochialism, or "seeing the world only through one's own lenses." As this is a privilege, so too is it a responsibility Michalson wants New College faculty and students to think more about shared experience rather than just individualism In the short term, this means such activities as monthly faculty colloquiums and open forums for discussion of student theses; he supports these not only by word-of mouth, but by funding them and frequently by serving as host. But in the long term, it means community service as well Al though Michalson speaks weU of the record New College alumni have in teaching, he feels that in other areas of community service that record is "spotty That Michalson is so outspoken on issues like this is an important For Michalson, it is int portant for the community to ask itself questions such as: 'What does it mean to be innovative?" reason he has won the approval and support of many of the current faculty and students. Coming from outside New College he has a bal anced eye for its weaknesses as well as a keen appreciation of its strengths. He is articulate about both For Michalson, it is important that the community ask itself ques tions such as : "What does it mean to be innovative?" In his role as Dean and Warden, he wants to build internal conversation on these issues in order to give New College a feeling of consensus. This consensus is continually in formed and enhanced by commu nity expansion and by the dialogue stimulated by such Michalson-sup portcd projects as the Minority Women Writers' Conference and the Conference on Crossing Educa tional Borders It will make New College a stronger presence in the greater community. A part of this, of course, is rela tions with New College's USF par ent. Here Michalson is optimistic. He interacts daily with Dean David Schenk in a relationship he de scribes as "cooperative," and he New CoUege Dean and Warden Gordon "Mtken Mtchalson with students Mike Rothbaum, Chad Goldberg (93 grad) and Camtl/a Mortensen Continued on page 2


Warden Focuses on Community feels that in general, relations between New College and the University Program are improv ing. He dtes one inddent as an example: when he discussed his idea to provide New College with a new student center, New College students insisted that UP students get their fair share of support. Given the history of enmity between the programs, Michalson found this a hearten ing surprise, and he expects more of the same in the future. Michalson admits that fund ing difficulties stand in the way of a lot of expansions he would like to make-particularly as re gards faculty and staff, where prioritizing the use of limited new salary lines is a particular necessity He is no pessimist, however, and speaks of many improvements he has in mind, though he is sometimes cau tious about their implementa tion For one thing, Michalson would like to expand the stu dent body to 60Q..-wPause at that point, w he says "and see what happens." He is also in terested in building a new dormitory and a new Natural Sciences building The latter he would like to construct on the grounds of the old Circus Hall of Fame, which he hopes New College will be able to purchase in the future. He would These problems and others can be solved by interdivisional cooperation and by adding faculty in such fields as Asian history and comparative literature. Al though he admits that funding for such positions may be a long time in coming, Michalson would also like to add a new administrative officer to the New College able to provide both career counseling and minority affairs support Such spedalties are often found in combination, he notes. also like to renovate College Hall to con vert the second floor for use by the division of Social Sciences. Michalson envisions the newly acquired Bon Seigneur House, on Sarasota Bay north of College Hall, as a student center. He is also favorable to a am impressed with the human re sources at New Col lege... (and) the incredible loyalty that New College seems to breed. Michalson says he is "keen to explore" new. Alumnae/i As sociation Presi dent David Smolker's plan to involve alumnae/i in adjunct teach ing positions current plan to convert a part of the house for use by returning alumnae/i In the realm of faculty and expansion, Michalson has his eye on the problem of one person language programs, which be calls "a recipe for burnout." He is also interested in expanding to cover a more in ternational range of subjects. Such posi tions, gener ally to run about seven weeks, would en able the increase in student population Michalson needs in order to get state money for more full-time faculty Alums can also be helpful, he says, by participat ing in joint student-alum ISPs and by sup porting internships within their own businesses agendes and professional practices Those who live in Florida should "keep the heat on state legislators to provide support and funding." He also encourages .finandal contributions, even if modest, to the Alumnae/i Associa tion A high percentage of alumnae/i con tributions, he explains helps the Foundation demonstrate the value of New College to its potential large donors. "I am impressed with the human re sources at New College says Michalson, who also notes "the incredible loyalty that New College seems to breed." "Re markable things have been accom plished ... which reflects dedicated faculty and talented students. The alumnae/i community are bright people, and their involvement is welcome." He expects more and more creative input as New Col1ege's alum population grows in size and experience. Dr. Mtcbalson talks with Charlene Bredder '90, who 'll be the Class of '93 representative on the New Co/Jege Foundation Board of Trustees for the next three years. Matt Posner holds an M.A. from Flor ida State University and is a graduate council fellow at the University of Ala bama. Nimbus, Summer 1993 -Page 2


Paintings Reveal a Child's World by Suzie Siegel She works quietly at her desk. She does what her teacher wants. But her ann stretches out as if to warn she cannot be controlled long. "I purposefully distorted the painting," Steven Da.Verne (NC '77) says "I'm interested in render ing children not as cute little but tons or nasty little pains in the butt, but all of the variations in be tween." DaVerne who lives in Lutz F1a., worked in mental health for eight years The improvements he saw in troubled preschoolers intrigued him. "They're so responsive to what you do and say. You could meas ure change within weeks," he says. As an artist, I felt an intense need to produce works that reflected to the 'outside world' what was hap pening on the 'inside."' Thus, the Learning Series was born in 1988. So far, DaYerne has done a dozen canvases using acryl ics, pastels, graphite, ink, crayon, photographs and acetate. "I was just fuscinated how he used notes in research meetings in his artwork," says Pamela Osnes, his former boss at the Carousel pre school in the Florida Mental Health Instirute at the University of South F1orida "He was full of ideas. The preschool mixed 41;verage children with ones at risk of being classified as severely emotionally disrurbed when they started school. No other Florida preschool combined troubled and regular kids with research as the goal. The troubled kids in Carousel had proven unmanageable else where, he says "This was the end of the road. They were beating up on themselves, their playmates, their teachers. Researchers relied on behavior analysis, using initials in their re cords to stand for the affection, in-struction and guid ance a parent di rected toward a child. He put the in itials from one analy sis session into the painting This Child DaVernesaw some children whose parents had given up. He says adults should continue to set goals, making it clear what behavior they expect. When children fail to do something, adults should quietly guide them through the task "If a parent makes a big deal, children learn how to push their parents' but tons. For a kid, any at tention is better than Steven DaVerne works on one of hts paintings, Thts Chtld Hts paintings are an extension of b1s work wtlh troubled preschool-age chtldren no attention. Continually expressing disap pointment tells children that they are bad and they cannot live up to their self-esteem, and their behav ior may worsen. The painting "Begin with 1 + 1" includes a chart marking the per centage of positive reinforcement one child received from adults dur ing a day. DaVerne wanted to illus trate the foundations of knowledge. "The same numbers a child learns, 1, 2 3, 4, are the same sci enlists use to solve sophisticated problems. The painting has triangles in pri mary colors, "the beginning of all colors. He has eroded the trian gles to symbolize how "what starts out as bright, brilliant and fresh in the child gets worn down over time. "The more we learn, the more cynical we get." In 1988, he left the mental health field to concentrate on art. His wife Tina Da.Veme, continues to research children's behavior at the Florida Mental Health Institute, and they exchange ideas. Besides the Learning Series he does abstracts His paintings have hung in exhibils in Florida, New York, California, and Arizona. He also works as a commercial artist to pay the bills Gail Mead, distinguished lec turer in fine arts at New College, considers his work "smashing. "Art is just a technique, like a blank piece of paper in a type writer, she says His interest in learning gives him somelhing to say. "The truly creative person is constantly learning.

New College Gamelan byVictor Lewis '89 Paul Wolbers, visiting assistant professor of music, has brought to New College a gamelan (gamelan is the Indonesian word for orchestra). He originally formed the gamelan as a practicum offered in conjunction with a course on music in Indone sia, but since student interest con tined, so did the gamelan. Some students participate for contract credit while others participate for recreation. Faculty members Tony Horowitz, Aron Edidin '73, and Gordon Bauer also performed with the group. The New College Gamelan played several concerts this year, performing at the opening of the Caples Fine Arts Complex: (shown above), in the Palm Court, at the Sarasota Quay, and at the Festival of World Music in Gainesville, Fla., (or ganized by Denny Genovese '87).

Greetings: I'm told that my first duty as president of the Alumnae/i Associa tion is to address you, my fellow alumnae/i. We'll call it the "State of the Reunion" message. I'll begin by recalling a recent glorious spring evening down by the bay behind South (Cook) Hall Lori and I had decided to crash the 1993 New College commencement exercise As I watched the class of 1993 accept their diplomas to the enthusiastic, raucous and respect fully irreverent cheers of their fel low students, I was struck by the well wom cliche; the more things change, the more they stay the same. Present were faculty members from whom I took classes nearly twenty (yes, it's hard to be lieve) years ago. They seemed virtu ally unchanged by the years. The class of 1993 seemed, in many ways, indistinguishable from the class of 1973. It's as if New College has a timeless recipe. You start out with typical above-average high school students, plop them in an isolated, slightly warped social and academic oasis by the bay in the tropics, subject them to a healthy dose of sun, heat, and humidity, give them plenty of spare time and freedom, allow them to be gently poked, prodded and tweaked by a rather curious mix of professional intellectuals, and anywhere from three to seven years later, out pop somewhat dazed, disheveled, ami able barefooted persons, whose sex can not be determined by the length of their hair and, who, dressed in baggy shorts and T shirts with social messages, appear intensely focused on some far off object not readily visible to the rest of the world. Whatever they may be focused on, you may rest assured that, if the class of 1993 is any indication, the New College spirit is alive and well! The real question begging to be answered is what can we as alum nae/i do to help the spirit grow and keep it alive? How can we ma terially contribute to the New Col lege community though most of us live far away and have little, if any, regular contact with New College? New Alumnae/t Assoctatton President Davtd Smolker '72 What can we do for ourselves as in dividuals who, though traveling down disparate and diverse paths of life, share a common bond of having attended New College and could benefit from each other's post-New College life experiences? In the answers to these questions lies the purpose of the New Col lege Alumnae/i Association As an organization, the Alum nae/i Association is at a crossroads. During the early years the focus was on getting off the ground, both organizationally and finan. cially In recent years, the focus has been on establishing, implement ing, and endowing ongoing programs such as the Faculty Development Grant, Alumnae/i Fel low and Student Grant Programs These programs are in place and will grow. New College Foundation, Inc. ALUMNAEJ1 AsSOCIATION Nimbus 5700 N Tamiami Trail Sarasota, FL 34243-2197 Under the Alumnae/i Fellow Pro gram, we hope this year to sponsor full academic credit courses taught by alumnae/i. Not surprisingly, the Student Grant Program met with great popularity among students. The number of worthy applica tions far exceeded our budget This program will be expanded as moneys allow. And we have com pleted the endowment of the Fac ulty Development Grant Program. Where do we go from here? Good question. At its last meeting, the Board formed a Strategic Plan ning Committee to undertake the task of defining where we are headed as an organization and what our goals and priorities should be. So stay tuned! One of the first orders of busi ness is to plan for next year's reun ion. It is tentatively scheduled to be held in Sarasota on April 8 10 Presently, we desperately need a volunteer to coordinate the reun ion. Additionally, we need a volun teer preferably from the Sarasota area to coordinate the annual phonathon fundraiser. Please call Carol Ann Wllkinson (813-359-4324) or me (813-221-6600) if you are interested in volunteering. In the final analysis, our success as an organization depends on your involvement Please let me know your thoughts and ideas as to how we can move forward. David Smolker Non-Profit Org.
