The School of Nursing is excited to announce the expansion of the Carol Morde Ross Distinguished Professorship with the help of the Ross family and their generous donation. Funding for the endowed professorship will double, with the goal being to increase funds to $1 million. The professorship is currently held by Victoria Soltis-Jarrett.
Established by Carol and Coleman Ross in 2013, the fund supports psychiatric-mental health nursing to increase access to care and ensure delivery of the highest quality of that care. The Ross’ sought to fill the gaps that exist in the practice of mental healthcare, and their generous doubling of the endowed professorship will surely further these goals.
Many thanks to the Ross family for their generous contributions to the School of Nursing!
