New College of California, a small liberal arts college founded in San Francisco in the early 1970's, is an integral part of the fabric of the city's progressive community. In the past several years, however, faculty and students began to notice a strange shift taking place at the school. New College's president, Peter Gable, and a small group of administrators seemed to be pushing a new philosophical agenda for education at New College: communitarianism The article tracked the influence of this communitarian ideals in one year at New College. During that time, five of the school's most popular humanities professors were dismissed and offered a deal wherein they would be paid up to two years worth of salaries and benefits to refrain from publicly discussing the terms of their departures.
