St. Edward's University Selects First Recipient of New College Community Partner Award
The New College Community Partner Award is presented to an organization affiliated with New College or on an individual basis. Nominations are solicited from St. Edward’s University faculty members in the spring, and the recipient is chosen by a committee made up of New College representatives.
New College offers students the opportunity to earn credit through recognition of prior learning and other options, including seminar, individualized/directed study, and online courses. New College is committed to teaching excellence with an emphasis on the liberal arts, critical thinking, values analysis and multicultural perspectives.
