New College opened its doors on July 1, 2009. Despite its age, New College has a proud history. Formerly Atkinson College, it was the only college in the Atkinson Faculty of Liberal and Professional Studies. When the Atkinson Faculty merged with the Faculty of Arts, Atkinson College continued its commitment to professional programs by supporting three large professional departments, namely the School of Administrative Studies, the School of Information Technology and the School of Human Resource Management.

New College has a mandate to support professionally oriented students through their programs of study. To this end, the college sponsors case competitions, career workshops and professional networking events. There is also an opportunity to be involved in cocurricular activities that include peer tutoring, mentoring and workshops on topics such as working in groups, note-taking and time management.

The college has a strong group of student leaders represented by the New College Council. The college also houses a number of student clubs including the American Marketing Association, Atkinson Professional Accounting Association, Human Resources Student Association, Information Technology Student Association and the National Finance Association.

New College continues a strong tradition of connecting students, faculty, staff and the professional community. Its programs and events will continue to develop as we settle into the new Faculty and respond to faculty and student needs.
