New College of Florida is advancing a far-reaching plan to increase its student body by 41 percent and move into the upper ranks of liberal arts colleges in the nation.
The smallest of Florida’s 12 universities, the Sarasota-based New College would increase its enrollment from 850 students this fall to 1,200 by the fall of 2022. The plan would require hiring 40 new faculty members, 61 staff members and spending $45 million on construction, including a new multi-use student center.
