The Jacobson Institute for Innovation in Education was established in 2008 by a gift from Richard O. Jacobson. A significant portion of this gift has been designated to support graduate students in education. Mr. Jacobson joined the Grand View Board of Trustees in 1997 and continues to serve. His leadership and philanthropy at Grand View, and throughout and beyond Iowa, has helped numerous organizations improve education, build community and prepare for a better future. The vision of the Jacobson Institute for Innovation in Education is to identify innovative strategies that improve the quality of teaching and learning and to put them into practice.
