Commercial cleaning company shares vital knowledge with business students ... Friends, alumni, and current Sharks go All IN for NSU
Triple Shark Leaves a Legacy
Triple Shark. Dean. Donor. Crisis Clinician. Alumna. Champion of Veterans. Pilot. Grandmother. Dog Walker. And, if needed, even barista. NSU Fellows Society member Kimberly Durham, Psy.D., has held many titles, including dean of the Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice. 
Industry Partnership Fills a Void
At the height of the pandemic, vital personal protection equipment was in short supply for the College of Dental Medicine (CDM). Solutions company and NSU Fellows Society member, Henry Schein, Inc. joined forces with the American Dental Education Association and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to ensure patient care could safely continue.
Financial Literacy Series Succeeds
You Got This! Since last November, more than 2,600 people tuned into this message through a series of workshops on financial literacy, entrepreneurship, and workforce education. Presented by NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library and sponsored by NSU Fellows Society member, the Truist (SunTrust) Foundation, the sessions were free to the public and covered topics ranging from managing your money in a crisis to marketing your own business.
Investing Time in Students
“We’re in the business of helping people get into business,” said Adam Povlitz, CEO and president of Anago Cleaning Systems, when asked why his company chose to establish a scholarship at NSU. That is also the reason Povlitz agreed to participate in the Executives and Entrepreneurs in Residence Program at the Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship.

FIVE BY FIVE
University Advancement Vice President Terry Mularkey is a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces. Getting a “Five by Five” report meant that the signal being used to communicate over two-way radios had excellent strength and perfect clarity. Here are five stories that clearly signal NSU Shark pride.
ALL IN for NSU
Thank you to those who jumped “ALL IN” to swim with NSU Sharks this year. NSU raised a record-breaking $196,781 and received 986 gifts and counting. To find out why people were excited to give, donors Tamara Beliard Rodriguez, the Reed Family, and the Enrollment Advisory Group share their stories.

Virtual Conversations with Holocaust Survivors
Groundbreaking technology allows visitors to the Craig and Barbara Weiner Holocaust Reflection and Resource Center within NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library to ask questions and get answers directly from Holocaust survivors. This interactive display is unique to the center and ensures that testimonies from survivors can be preserved. In addition, thanks to a permanent loan, a centuries-old Torah that survived the Holocaust is on display at the center.
 
Another Step Forward
NSU’s Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Allopathic Medicine is another step closer to full accreditation. One more to go!

Getting Shots into Arms
NSU is now administering doses of the COVID-19 vaccine on campus as Sharks return to campus.
 
Six-Zero
A tribute to arms that deliver great shots… across a net. NSU’s women’s tennis team recorded a 13 consecutive match win with a (6-0) victory. Sharks Tennis ranks No. 4! Fins Up!

NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater recently reshared her 2015 chat with “Baby” Jane Holzer, a New York actress, film producer, art collector, and real estate mogul who inspired the likes of Andy Warhol and Anna Sui. Investors—and collectors—often craft a set of principles to help guide their decision-making. Tune in to be transported to Holzer’s universe, then head to the museum to explore the World of Anna Sui, on view through October 3.
Donor Exchange
Submit your response to the following question, and we’ll share a few of the answers we receive in the next issue.

In honor of Financial Literacy Month, what is the best piece of financial advice you have received?
In our last issue, we asked donors what advice, message, or mantra resonates with you the most after spending nearly a year navigating the impact of COVID-19. Here is one donor's response ...

"Be kind. Be considerate to others. It's not about YOU. Each person's COVID experience is unique. Have empathy. Wear a mask for others. Get the vaccine for all." – Anonymous
