From Sarasota Magazine, September 8, 2020

The six-part lecture series, via Zoom, will touch on issues from politics to economics to cybersecurity.

Now marking its 60th anniversary, New College has many alumni who have gone on to exceptional careers and lives. A few of them will speak on a broad range of issues beginning in October, in the New College Foundation’s 2020-21 season of its New Topics lecture series.
Each of the six lectures this season will be presented via the Zoom platform, rather than in person, due to the pandemic. The event is sponsored in part by Sarasota Magazine, and is free for New College students, faculty, staff and alumni. Otherwise, tickets are $10; all proceeds go to fund student scholarships.


Founded in Sarasota in 1960, New College of Florida is a top-ranked public liberal arts college and the state’s Honors College of Florida. New College prepares intellectually curious students for lives of great achievement by providing a highly individualized education that integrates academic rigor with career-building experiences. New College offers 45 undergraduate majors in arts, humanities and sciences, a master’s degree program in applied data science, and certificates in technology, finance, and business skills.
