BROOKLYN - A St. Francis College professor landed on NerdScholar's "40 Under 40: Professors Who Inspire 2015" list.

History professor Sara Haviland was nominated to the list by student Elizabeth Peralta.

Professors who make the list must inspire and engage those whom they teach. They must also be involved in the campus community and show passion for what they teach.

Haviland, 33, says that she is flattered by her inclusion on the list. She advises students at St. Francis and everywhere else to study what they love.
