Nusbaum Honors College Reception Held

Norfolk State University officials held a reception in celebration of the Robert C. Nusbaum Honors College. The Norfolk State University Board of Visitors voted to name the University’s Honors College for local philanthropist Robert C. Nusbaum in May 2017. The university held the reception Aug. 23, at the G.W.C. Brown Memorial Hall Replacement Building. Nusbaum, a prominent, business and community leader, has been the chief patron of the NSU honors college program since its inception in 1993, raising $1.5 million for its benefit. While serving on the board of the former Alison J. and Ella W. Parsons Foundation, Nusbaum assisted the University in securing its first grant from the foundation and continued his work when the foundation became the Parsons Fund, a part of the Hampton Roads Community Foundation. Additionally, he worked with the administration of the honors college to solicit financial support from the Batten, Landmark and Beazley foundations.
