General Information About Sanford-Brown Institute
The history of the Sanford-Brown name dates back to 1866 when Rufus C. Crampton, a professor at Illinois College, established a school to meet the demands of post-Civil War America. Sanford-Brown was founded in New York City in 1977 and was managed by two physicians from New York's Cabrini Medical Center. In 1981, the school was given approval to formally organize and be recognized by the New York State Education Department. Since then, the growth and expansion of our network of student-focused, career-centric campuses has continued. Today, the Sanford-Brown name represents private colleges and schools across the United States.
