New College becomes epicenter of fight over “woke” political ideologies
In Florida, New College’s conservative makeover is proving to be ground zero in the state’s battle to remove social justice ideology from campuses across the state.
New College found itself in the crosshairs earlier this year after it eliminated a gender studies program, the Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) office, and officials “misgendered” people.
Christopher Rufo, a conservative writer, filmmaker, and activist, was appointed as one of six new board trustees this year by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who envisioned New College offering a classical education.
