New College opened its doors on July 1, 2009 and celebrated its 5th anniversary this year. Despite its young 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, the then new faculty, Faculty of Liberal Arts and Professional Studies (LA&PS), continued Atkinson Faculty commitment to professional programs by supporting three large professional schools, namely the School of Administrative Studies, the School of Human Resource Management and the School of Information Technology.

New College has a mandate to help first-year students transition from high school and supports professionally-oriented students through their programs of study. To this end, the college sponsors case competitions, career workshops, professional networking events and symposia. There is also an opportunity to be involved in co-curricular activities that include study groups, mentoring and workshops on topics such as health, studying abroad, international internship, Microsfot Excel, professional software and event planning.

The college has a strong group of student leaders represented by the New College Council. The college also houses sin clubs:

New College is affiliated with Pond Road Residence and Global House, an internationally focused community dedicated to both Canadian and international students.

New College continues a strong tradition of connecting students, faculty, staff and the professional community, and of developing ties with its alumni.

Each Wednesday members of the New College community can meet for coffee, and connect with one another.
