A DISTINGUISHED HERITAGE Founded in 1960, New College opened in 1964 as a private college whose students would come from all parts of the nation and whose faculty and curriculum would reflect the highest standards of excellence. New College attracted immediate attention for the nature and quality of its academic program. In 1967, when the first students were graduated, the College won accreditation. Soon graduates began to make their marks in chosen careers and in graduate and professional schools. As the College matured academically, inflationary pressures threatened its very life in the early 1970s. After exploring various strategies for survival, the college administration and trustees proposed to the Board of Regents of the State University System of Florida a novel plan that allowed the institution to become a freestanding college within the University of South Florida, sharing the campus with the University's regional academic program. Special action by the Florida Legislature set the stage for this unique partnership to occur. New College was continued through a combination of support from the State and rumual grants from the New College Foundation. Together, they enable the college to remain small and to continue its distinctive program. As an honors college of the State University System of Florida, New College has continued to thrive, earning accolades from reviewers ranging from the editors of Money magazine to the site visit committee of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to the compilers of Barron's Guide to the Most Competitive Colleges. New College's more than 3,000 graduates are making their mark as scholars, entrepreneurs, civic leaders, educators, attorneys, physicians, artists, journalists and in a host of other professions throughout Florida, the nation and the world. Events, activities, programs, and facilities of the University of South Florida are available to all without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, handicap, or age as provided by Law and in accordance with the University's respect for personal dignity.
