In 2019, the Mellon Foundation awarded a five-year $750,000 grant to New College of Florida. New College + the Cross College Alliance in the Community supports curricular and research initiatives that preserve local history, integrate social and racial justice work into artistic practice and teaching, and explore questions of special interest to the local community. As a result of this grant, six new courses have been developed at New College, five of them being offered this spring.
