Sanford-Brown Institute


Sanford-Brown Colleges and Institutes are a system of practical education schools designed for students seeking career training in health care, business, dental, design, media arts, and technology. Established in 1866, Sanford-Brown was the brainchild of Rufus C. Crampton, an Illinois college professor who sought to meet the educational needs of Americans after the Civil War. Over the past 145 years, Sanford-Brown has grown to include 18 private colleges and schools located throughout the United States. Sanford-Brown merged with the International Academy of Design & Technology (IADT) and Brown College in 2014, broadening the scope of their degree and certificate granting programs.

Sanford-Brown is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).
