About Sanford Inspire

Mirror ball reflecting a city skyline


Each child deserves an inspirational teacher. The mission of Sanford Inspire is to empower educators with research-based knowledge, tools, and practices so they can inspire students to achieve academically and socially. We partner with teacher preparation organizations and PK-12 school districts to strengthen our vision of providing an inspirational teacher in every classroom.

Sanford Inspire began with a commitment between T. Denny Sanford and educators at the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College at Arizona State University (ASU). To begin the inspire movement, ASU created 80+ On-Demand Modules: research-based, online, micro-courses where teachers learn to build strong relationships with students and enhance their instructional practice.
