NSU’s Oceanographic Center to be renamed NSU Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center after generous gift
Guy Harvey is joining the list of other philanthropic icons by having his name added to a building at Nova Southeastern University. Because of his generous financial gift, NSU’s Oceanographic Center will now be known as the NSU Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center.
His gift will allow students and researchers at the Oceanographic Center to enhance their research and provide scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students studying marine biology.
“This is another wonderful example of Dr. Harvey’s philanthropic, academic and environmental passion and we are thrilled that NSU’s relationship with him and his foundation will continue for many years to come,” said NSU’s president George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. “I am particularly excited that his gift will help the next generation of marine biologists, researchers and oceanographers continue the important work that our Oceanographic Center is doing. I commend Dr. Harvey for his commitment not only to our environment, but to our students as well.”
This aid will further NSU’s already established relationship with Guy Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. The Oceanographic Center has been home to the Guy Harvey Institute, where researchers have been studying and learning about our marine ecosystem.
“The cutting edge research work being conducted by the Guy Harvey Research Institute at the Oceanographic Center is something I am very proud of and hopefully the additional funds from this arrangement will help ensure the continued growth of the research and educational work ongoing at the Center,” said Harvey in a press release.
A marine wildlife artist and conservationist who earned a Ph.D. in fisheries biology, Harvey’s love for the marine world has led to his collaboration with NSU and the establishment of the GHRI in 1999.
