Counseling and Wellness Center
The Counseling and Wellness Center (CWC) is available to all currently registered New College and University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee students. The CWC provides services related to the development of the whole person: emotional and physical well-being, as well as academic concerns. A wellness philosophy is the foundation for all services and programs. Our belief is that wellness helps students to be more responsible for their lives and to understand the factors that affect their well-being. CWC therapists provide individual, couples and group counseling, as well as crisis intervention and psycho-educational information. The center provides health services, including immunizations, and disability services designed to support each student’s full participation in all programs and activities.
New College is dedicated to ensuring an organized, structured, coordinated and caring response in crisis emergency situations. The campus is equipped with a system of emergency telephones, aka "blue phones" that, when activated, dial directly into the Campus Police department, in addition to strategically-placed cameras in parking areas. Our NCFSafe system enables the College to contact all members of the New College community simultaneously via email, analog/ cellular telephone and text messaging in the event of an emergency. We also have several communications systems that use broadcast speakers to alert everyone of an emergency. This includes two-way communications between each classroom, or as a group to the Campus Police dispatch. Dispatch can then make a campus-wide announcement to one or all classrooms, and classroom occupants can make a call to police dispatch with the push of a button. And living in Florida, you can be assured that we are highly prepared in the event of a hurricane, tropical storm or other weather emergency. Read our Emergency Operations Plan.
Gender and Diversity Center
Through programming, advocacy and collaboration, the Gender and Diversity Center (GDC) works with campus entities to facilitate an environment that is inclusive, responsive and supportive to the needs of underrepresented campus participants at New College.
