The history of New College goes back to the late 1950s when, at the behest of the local Chamber of Commerce, citizens banded together to seek out a local college to complement the growing city’s art museum, symphony orchestra and theaters. The mission and goals of New College evolved out of intensive dialogue about higher education at the College’s inception in the early 1960s. That dialogue involved administration, trustees and the charter faculty.
