Dr. Adelaide L. Hines Sanford

Please join us as we celebrate our beloved educator, Dr. Adelaide L. Hines Sanford, Vice Chancellor Emerita on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

Dr. Sanford earned degrees from Brooklyn College, Wellesley College, and Fordham University.  In addition, she has also received four honorary doctoral degrees.

Dr. Sanford became principal, at the inner city school, Crispus Attucks in Brooklyn, NY.  It was there that she earned an outstanding reputation for promoting cultural and educational excellence in student achievement.

In 1986, Sanford won unanimous election to the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York.  As Chairperson of the Regents' Committee on Low Performing Schools, Dr. Sanford played an instrumental role in shaping new educational policies that sought to close the gap of student performance among schools. 

She was elected to the position of Vice Chancellor in 2001 and re-elected in 2004.  Many honors and awards have been bestowed upon Dr. Sanford for her work.  She received the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's humanitarian award, and distinguished alumna awards from Wellesley College and Brooklyn College. 

Her legacy continues to flourish nationally and internationally through the work of The Dr. John Henrik Clarke House, Elders’ House “The Elders’ Gift to the Children” and The Adelaide Sanford Institute.

We look forward to seeing you in November.  Tickets Available
