Today, the UNC School of Nursing launches its most ambitious fundraising campaign to date — a $22 million effort designed to ensure the School’s ability to recruit and retain top faculty and students, improve facilities, and enhance local and global initiatives.
The effort is part of the Campaign for Carolina, announced this morning by Chancellor Carol Folt and officials of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. With a goal of $4.25 billion, it is the largest and most ambitious fundraising campaign undertaken by a university in the Southeast, and is designed to secure the University’s place among the best institutions of higher education in the world.
The School of Nursing’s priorities for the campaign were established following extensive input from current and former faculty, students, alumni, friends and donors. They are as follows:
Faculty Support — to ensure the strength of our educational offerings, research enterprise, and service to the public, we are seeking endowed professorships, and funds for faculty development, research seeding and professional travel.
Student Support — to ensure that the best and brightest nursing students can study, practice, and advance health care in North Carolina, we are seeking scholarships, emergency funds, conference and global travel funds, and externship and clinical training funds.
Facilities Support — to ensure that the School of Nursing keeps pace with the latest advancements in nursing education and science, we are seeking funds to update our clinical skills labs, improve our classrooms and technology, and renovate Carrington Hall.
Global and Local Outreach — to ensure our mission of service to the people of North Carolina and beyond, we are seeking faculty service professorships, global and local travel awards, mobile clinic support funds, and research funds.
