New College of Florida President Patricia Okker

Join Lisa Moody, the host of Lessons Learned (a podcast about exceptional thought leadership and community service on the Suncoast), for her interview with New College of Florida President Patricia Okker.

In this far-ranging interview, Moody and Okker delve into what makes New College special and why—for many students—the College’s approach to education is so productive.

Moody learns how New College prepares intellectually curious students for lives of great achievement by developing each student’s unique intellectual and personal potential.

With a focus on hands-on learning (and not solely on credit hours and grade point averages), New College consistently generates graduates with the highest levels of competence and a practical mastery of subjects and areas of study.

All this adds up to graduates who are prepared for life and the workforce, and who are able to innovate and adapt to the world’s fast-changing landscape.

New College continues to attract the best and brightest students locally and from across the nation, and for good reason.
