Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice Receives Grant from National University System Sanford Programs

On April 21, 2020, Nova Southeastern University’s (NSU) Abraham S. Fischler College of Education & School of Criminal Justice (FCE&SCJ) extended its partnership with the National University System Sanford Programs for academic year 2020-2021 by receiving a grant of $141,500.

Established at the National University System, Sanford Programs are made possible through a generous gift from philanthropist and businessman Thomas Denny Sanford. NSU is part of a nationwide initiative that is introducing research-based PreK-12 initiatives (Sanford Harmony and Sanford Inspire, as applicable) in conjunction with schools and districts in the state of Florida. The content is based on the most current and accepted educational theory, so the focus is on practical implementation to develop skills in children who engage better in school and relationships in the long run.

With this grant, the new Sanford Inspire On-Demand Module curriculum will be embedded into the NSU’s Fischler Academy program.
