FORT LAUDERDALE-DAVIE, Fla. — Nova Southeastern University (NSU) recently hosted its Third Annual Fellows Society Induction Ceremony unveiling a commemorative monument to honor all the Fellows who have given $50,000 or more to the university since its founding in 1964. The event, held Tuesday, Oct. 15, included the induction of 54 new Fellows by NSU President and CEO George L. Hanbury II and Chair of the Fellows Society and NSU Board of Trustee member Alan B. Levan.

Fellows Society members are NSU’s highest level of philanthropic benefactors who actively advocate on behalf of the university while building personal and professional networks. They are recruited by NSU’s Ambassadors Board, whose mission is to enlist widespread and active support for the university’s development efforts, promote NSU programs, and be the university’s “ambassadors” to our communities and constituencies.  Susie and Alan Levan serve as co-chairs for the Ambassadors Board.

“President Hanbury and I are passionate about honoring those who help advance the vision and mission of the university,” said Mr. Levan.

In addition to the commemorative monument, Fellows’ Way, located between NSU’s H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship and the Rose and Alfred Miniaci Performing Arts Center, was dedicated to Fellows Society members.  Fellows’ Way, located in the heart of NSU’s main campus, is where the monument permanently resides.

“We are grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Levan for taking on this leadership role as Ambassadors to help the university,” said Hanbury. “What the Fellows are doing is providing scholarships and opportunities for NSU students to reach and fulfill their potential in their lives, fields of study and resulting careers.”
