The Nina B. Hollis Institute began with a desire to work collaboratively with local schools. A small group of faculty decided that it was important to bring tschools into college classrooms. Instead of telling the schools what we could do for them, we asked the schools, "What can we do for you?" Year after year our projects have changed and grown with the needs and desires of the local schools we work with. However, our resources were as limited as our time.
Through the generous gift of the Mark Hollis family we were able to hire a full-time school liaason to work in the schools and are able to fund small projects to support our work. Along the way we have received grant funding from the State of Florida as well as the Federal Government. We are proud of the partnerships we have cultivated and built and the products that has transpired through our partnerships.
