Multiple Media Outlets Report on Sanford Collaborative
A number of media outlets covered the announcement of the newly formed Sanford Education Collaborative — a nine-university network that includes the University of Maine. The College of Education and Human Development at UMaine was awarded $65,000 to help implement the Sanford Harmony Program in pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes in several area schools. The program is designed to enhance peer relationships and focuses on developing interpersonal skills of communication, collaboration, inclusion and empathy to provide a foundation for a healthier society. The Times of San Diego, The San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego Source: The Daily Transcript, seattlepi.com and KPBS reported on the $30 million nationwide initiative, which is administered by San Diego-based National University and is inspired by the vision of philanthropist and entrepreneur T. Denny Sanford.
