New College and the Cross-College Alliance in the Community

From SRQMagazine. com   July 13, 2019
What role should colleges or universities play in the local communities in which they are located?
Of course, different institutions have different missions, so no single answer to this question could apply to every institution.

In fact, the local institutions that comprise the Cross-College Alliance (CCA): New College of Florida, Ringling College of Art and Design, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, The Ringling Museum and the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee owe their existence to the communities in which we are located. The health of our institutions depends on the health of our communities, and each of the CCA institutions encourages students and staff to participate in community service.
