New College President Wants to Raise Awareness of the College

Donal O’Shea sits back in his New College of Florida office overlooking Sarasota Bay and jokes: “They say the mathematician looking at your shoes is at least an extrovert, because he’s looking at you,” he says. But the new president of New College is a respected mathematician and is hardly introverted. The long-time dean of faculty and vice president for academic affairs at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts wants to help raise awareness for the public liberal arts school that he feels should be better known for being consistently ranked nationally.
