Sanford Education Programs

Long Island University is an inaugural member of the Sanford Education Collaborative, a network of private nonprofit and public research universities committed to creating a new paradigm for educator excellence and student achievement. Selected based on proven effective clinical preparation, regional representation, and institutional diversity, Collaborative members are working together to revolutionize the education landscape and ensure the success of future generations of students.

The Sanford Education Collaborative is dedicated to the national advancement and ongoing research of the Sanford Education Programs: Sanford Harmony and Sanford Inspire. Launched in 2014, the Sanford Education Programs were established to provide innovative and inspirational programs to leaders in the education and nonprofit sectors. Through Sanford Harmony and Sanford Inspire, educators are provided with the tools to make a positive impact on the lives of our youth. Sanford Harmony provides a foundation for positive peer relationships for Pre-K through 6th grade students. Sanford Inspire empowers both pre-service and in-service educators to create inspiring classroom experiences for all students.

Grounded in research and best practices, both Harmony and Inspire are offered at no cost to schools and educators through the generosity of T. Denny Sanford, National University and anonymous donors.
