Nova Southeastern University said Guy Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation are providing a financial gift that will allow students, faculty and other researchers at the college’s Oceanographic Center to enhance their work and also provide scholarships to undergraduate and graduate students studying marine biology.
Because of his generous gift, the Oceanographic Center will now be known as the Nova Southeastern University Guy Harvey Oceanographic Center.
For many years, Nova Southeastern University has enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Harvey and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. To that end, the Oceanographic Center is home to the Guy Harvey Research Institute, where researchers have been studying and learning about the marine ecosystem and the animals that call it home.
Now that relationship is being taken to the next level.
“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,” Nova Southeastern University president and CEO George L. Hanbury II said in a statement.
“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.”
“Today’s announcement is an extension of our long relationship with Nova Southeastern University,” said Steve Stock, president of Guy Harvey Inc. and the Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation, based in Davie, Fla. “This is a great win-win opportunity offering tremendous exposure to both of our brands and our joint mission to study and manage the world’s marine fishes and their ecosystems.”
“I am extremely pleased to have my name associated with Nova Southeastern University’s world-class Oceanographic Center in Hollywood and to further my relationship with the university,” Harvey said. “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.”
