I am thrilled to announce that the National University System has just received the largest donation in its history. Philanthropist and entrepreneur T. Denny Sanford has generously donated $28 million to our nonprofit university System so we can further our role in leading the national expansion of Sanford Harmony, Sanford Inspire and the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy.
The National University System was founded on the notion of universal access to education, to fostering a seamless approach to lifelong learning, and above all, to student success.
The 2020 Vision for the National University System (NUS) is “to be an educational system whose graduates are transformed and positively contribute to society.” Transforming our students means reimaging education and empowering our shared community of universities.
