NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Sarasota, Florida -Dr. George W. Petrie III, professor of mathematics, has been named Dean of Students at New College beginning September 1, 1967. Announcement of the appointment was made by New College President John Elmendorf who said that Dr. Petrie's new duties range over a broad area including general supervisory and coordinating responsi-bilities for extra-and co-curricular activities, student health, student discipline, and the college counseling program. Dr. Elmendorf said that with the start of the new academic year in September, Dr. Petrie would take over the office which was organized in 1965 and has been operated for the last two years by Robert J. Norwine along with his regular duties as Dean of Admissions. Dr. Petrie, who before joining the Nel.;r College faculty was educational affairs consultant for International Business Machines Corporation, and for several years director of its Executive School, said that he will retain some of his teaching duties in mathematics but that the Dean of Students office would offer full time assistance to students. more


NEW COLLEGE Page 2. He noted that the although mostly dealing with nonacademic affairs of the has many overlapping functions with the academic. Counseling, both academic and non-academic, health and discipline, he said, must all be considered in terms of each student's total campus life. "The Dean of Students office is a place where students may come for many kinds of assistance,'' said Dr. Petrie, "but my personal attitude is one of greatest respect for the student who is actively pursuing his course of serious academic study. That is each student's purpose for being here and therefore it becomes a factor in dealing with students." President Elmendorf said that Dr. Arthur HcA. Miller \-lould continue in his position as Assistant Dean of Students and that Dr. Petrie would also have on his staff a full time registered nurse, a recreation coordinator, a physician on call, and a part time religious counseling group. "Dean Norwine has done an outstanding job in both organizing and operating the office of Dean of Students," said President Elmendorf, "and it is only with the anticipation of increasing the sizes of entering classes plus the in size of the New College student body that the demands of the dual roles on his time have become overt-lhelming. 11 more -
