From SRQ Magazine, November 13, 2021

I am thrilled to announce that, after a full summer of on-campus construction, our dock on the New College bayfront is now complete.

This incredible resource for marine science research and waterfront recreation will serve the College, our entire community, and our beautiful Sarasota Bay, for years to come.

I am especially grateful to the state, and to our Florida legislators, for making this project possible. Because Sarasota Bay is so often our classroom at New College, this new dock will tremendously help our faculty and students conduct research to enhance the health of our local waters.

The dock will bolster New College’s traditionally strong and popular programs in marine biology and environmental studies, as well as our summer marine biology education programs for teens in Sarasota and Manatee counties. And it will be the home port for our sailing and waterfront recreation program.
