Endowed Faculty Positions

Leadership and excellence has defined the School of Nursing for over 100 years. Endowments for faculty positions are critical for the School to attract and retain outstanding researchers and educators. The 21st century will present unprecedented opportunities for nursing. Yet, an un-paralleled faculty shortage impacts our ability to prepare future nurse clinicians, educators and scientists. Your support of endowed chairs and professorships helps the School of Nursing recruit and sustain dynamic teaching faculty.

Endowment Funds may be recognized in name of the donor, or as tribute to the memory or honor of person(s) of the donor’s choice.
