Supporting Our College

One theme permeates this website, directs our activities in the classroom, in the clinic, and focuses our thoughts and scholarly productivity – Excellence through Relevance.  Striving for academic excellence is not a unique goal for higher education institutions.  What is often forgotten, however, is that our efforts have far less value if they are not relevant to our students' learning, the future work they will do, and the communities they will serve.  With your financial support, we can ensure that the faculty and students of the College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions can continue to integrate education and health science with community engagement.  Please allow me to suggest just a few of the options for directing your gift to the College of ENHP:

  • The Institute for Translational Research Fund: This recently created fund directly benefits our new vision for scholarship that is truly relevant to our community constituents.  It offers a great deal of flexibility in meeting the financial needs of the University-chartered Institute and its subsidiary research centers.  It will provide crucial seed money for faculty members and their students to learn about and engage in translational research and scholarship.  In time, as this fund grows and becomes fully endowed, it will provide resources to the Institute in perpetuity.
  • The Dean's Research Fund: Initially endowed by former Dean Dorothy Zeiser, this fund continues to support collaborative research among ENHP faculty members and professionals/paraprofessionals in our college-affiliated settings.  It helps research teams to initiate, advance, or expand their scholarly ideas and benefits the overall scholarly agenda of the college.
  • The ENHP Special Projects Fund: This fund allows me to meet the most critical needs of the college, students, and faculty each year.  It is often used to offer faculty development opportunities and make important student-related purchases not covered by the operating budget.

In addition to the above three college priorities, the University-managed ENHP Anchor Fund helps the central administration to offset the annual operational budget for the college.

I realize that your philanthropy is a reflection of your own passions and interests.  Thus, I encourage you to contact me directly to start a conversation on how you might play a role in maintaining and advancing ENHP's strategic goal – Excellence through Relevance. If you prefer to make a convenient online donation, please direct your gift to one of the suggestions above.

Excellence through Relevance
