The College of Nursing depends upon the support of individual, corporate and foundation gifts to ensure excellence for all of our programs. During the recent “Dream, Challenge Succeed” campaign which exceeded $1 billion dollars campus wide, the college received gifts and pledges totaling more than $10.5 million through the generosity of our alumni and friends.
Beginning in 2007-2008, the College admitted 160 students into the undergraduate program compared to 80 previously admitted each year. Each class has completed the enrollment expansion. These additional students continue to be highly qualified academically and bring a passion for nursing education and a desire to impact the lives of their patients they will one day serve. The college is ambitiously striving to establish additional scholarships to provide for this larger enrollment.
The college's needs are constantly changing as the needs of the academic departments and support organizations and programs change.
As the college grows, new and different needs arise which are not anticipated today. Therefore, the list of the college's potential needs is truly endless and limited only by the donor's and the college's imagination and vision. Donors are invited to share in the shaping of the college's future by discussing ways in which private support will help to meet the college's emerging needs.
