After graduation, he built a sawmill for another former New College student in Oregon, as a prelude to building a house that was self-sufficient for energy. The house was never built. He then went to the Chicago area and got a job in a machine shop, which led to a job at Northwestern University building scientific instruments for researchers. Fifteen years later he left for a three-year stint in Hong Kong, building a research machine shop at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, before returning to Northwestern as a design and prototyping specialist in the Engineering Design and Communication program.

Albert "Rick" Schofield '85
While at New College, Rick completed his thesis on the Sanctuary Movement versus First Amendment law and was pleased to have professors from three different disciplines on his committee. While rights remain important to him it was another event that led me to his life’s work.
In September 1985, New College hosted an evacuation shelter on campus for Hurricane Elena. That led to led to working with the Campus Improvement Trust and other opportunities in Sarasota and on campus, but managing that shelter also led Rick to his current passion and career.
As a division disaster director, he can now look back on almost 40 years of service to the community as either a paid or volunteer staff member of the American Red Cross. In that time, Rick has led or participated in more than 50 national relief operations and many smaller events, with expertise in mitigation, planning, training, mass care, recovery, volunteer development, team building and partnerships, ultimately focused on building successful outcomes for the Red Cross, our clients, our partners and our communities.
As a nonmath student in a math explorations class, he ended up working with professor Chae long into the evening on topics outside of the class work; Rick knew he was in the right place. That love of learning enhanced both his personal and professional life.
On the board, Rick is an advocate for opportunities for learning for the alumni and connecting alumni and current students to not only assist with their learning and career development but also as a way to keep alumni engaged in a meaningful way.
Rick currently lives in Houston, Texas, with his wife, Maura, and kids, Rebecca and Ricky.
