11th Anniversary: Phyllis Sandler Heart of Social Work

About the Event


Event Details

The Phyllis & Harvey Sandler School of Social Work at FAU offers acclaimed bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs that care for and attend to the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. During the 2020-2021 academic year, our social work students provided 160,000 community service hours through their internships valued at $7,330,400 to more than 200 agencies in the tri-county region and beyond. Our students also have a stellar 98% job-placement rate within three months of graduation.

On Friday, March 18 from 5-7 p.m., join us for a special time of connection and celebration as we unveil how the Sandler Family's incredibly generous $7 million gift has transformed our school and, together, enjoy a commemorative ribbon-cutting ceremony, hear a special keynote address from FAU President Dr. John Kelly, and honor our remarkable students and partners who are making a monumental difference in our communities near and far.

Pre-event tours will begin at 4:00 p.m. for those who wish to arrive early and will also be offered at the conclusion of the program. As you tour our beautifully-renovated facilities, envision a lasting tribute to your loved ones through a named space or a named expression of faculty and student support. Please find a comprehensive list of naming opportunities here. Your investment in our mission provides much-needed support as we strive to prepare and inspire the social work leaders of tomorrow. Thank you.

Delicious bites and refreshing libations will be served.
