New College of Florida has kicked off its search for a new president. The college's new leader will succeed President Donal O'Shea, who retires in June after a nine-year tenure. The New College board of trustees has appointed a search committee, led by chair Mary Ruiz (78), to conduct the national search for the college’s sixth president. The committee includes faculty, staff, a student representative, members of the community and alumni of the institution. The board's goal is to bring the new president to the College during summer 2021. Additional information about New College and its presidential search can be found here.
