A national search is now underway for New College of Florida’s vice president for advancement. The same individual will also be the executive director of the New College Foundation.
A small search committee chaired by Felice Schulaner, New College trustee and chair of the New College Foundation Board of Directors, considered proposals from six search firms that responded to New College’s request for proposals to guide this national search. The search committee also includes Bill Johnston, chair of the New College of Florida Board of Trustees, and John Martin, New College’s vice president for finance and administration, with New College President Dr. Donal O’Shea as an ex officio member.
Two firms were shortlisted and interviewed by the search committee via teleconference on November 19, 2012. Archer~Martin Associates, Inc. of Nantucket, Mass., was selected to guide the search. Archer~Martin is the same firm that led the New College presidential search last year. The new vice president for advancement will be hired by July 1, 2013.

New College of Florida is a national leader in the arts and sciences and is the State of Florida’s designated honors college for the liberal arts. Consistently ranked among the top public liberal arts colleges in America by U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and The Princeton Review, New College attracts highly motivated, academically talented students from 40 states and 25 foreign countries. A higher proportion of New College students receive Fulbright awards than graduates from virtually all other colleges and universities.
The New College Foundation provides the necessary private funding to enable New College to deliver an outstanding liberal arts and sciences education to high-achieving undergraduates from Florida and elsewhere. Through outright gifts and deferred giving, the New College Foundation raises critical funds for scholarships, faculty positions, academic programs, facilities, student and faculty research and travel, and endowments, with more than $100 million in public and private funds raised since 1980.
