National University was selected in 2014 to disseminate Sanford Harmony, a program created from the vision of philanthropist T. Denny Sanford. The program is designed to develop today’s youth into respectful, compassionate, and caring adults for the future by integrating the evidence-based strategies of Meet Up/Buddy Up along with grade-level lessons and activities into their learning environments.
