New College in the Community

At the New College, we encourage intellectual curiosity and an interest in new ideas and discussion. We participate in the community in a number of ways to help promote these values.
Our Vice Provost and Dean, Todd Sandrin, our faculty, and the ASU West Campus Leadership Alliance Board members are available to speak at community and corporate events. Whether you have a specific topic or faculty member in mind or you’d like some suggestions from us, we’ll work with you to make your event a success.
