The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded New College of Florida a $750,000 grant for building collaboration between local colleges and the region’s arts organizations.
The Mellon Foundation is one of the world’s most renowned philanthropies and is a leader in supporting higher education in the United States. Cristle Collins Judd, senior program officer at Mellon, will visit Sarasota to speak on why Mellon found New College’s proposal to be compelling and essential in today’s society.
Before joining the Mellon Foundation in 2015, Judd served for nine years as dean for academic affairs, chief academic officer, and professor of music at Bowdoin College. Prior to her appointment at Bowdoin, Judd was a member of the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania and also served as director of graduate studies in music. Before joining the Penn faculty, Judd taught at universities in the U.K. and Australia.
