Your Gift Can Support:
- Undergraduate Scholarships for our Nursing and Health Sciences Students
We are proud that 70% of our student body is ethnically diverse. Most of our students, however, need to work part-time or full-time while attending school. More than half of our undergraduates qualify for Pell grants, meaning they come from low-income households.
- Doctoral Student Fellowships
Your investments in doctoral student fellowships will ensure that health professionals with passion and capacity have the resources to reach the highest levels of educational attainment in their fields and accomplish their goals.
- Technology and Space
An outstanding healthcare education needs to incorporate the best spaces for learning and innovation, as well as new technologies – the same technologies students will encounter in the workplace. At this juncture, we need support for well-equipped labs and lecture halls. We also seek to develop an entrepreneurial culture at the college, supporting the development and commercialization of new healthcare products.
