The School of Business and Economics (SBE) at Sonoma State University (SSU) today announced that it received a $10,000 Community Impact Grant from New York Life, to enhance SBE academic and career services programs. Distinguished SBE alumnus and professional faculty member, Sanford Bressick ’85, facilitated the grant.

“Sonoma State University had a formative influence on me and I want to help provide the same rich experience for today’s young adults,” Sanford Bressick ’85, a financial services professional with New York Life said. “I’m proud to work for a company that encourages its agents and employees to devote their time, energy, and talents to support the needs and priorities of their local community.”

“One of the ways that we’re able to create extraordinary learning experiences for our students is by building a vibrant community of professionals and alumni like Sanford. We’re grateful for this generosity and wealth of expertise that serves to enhance student learning and career success,” Dr. William S. Silver, Dean of the School of Business and Economics said.
