Why Give to the School of Health Professions?

Contributions to the School of Health Professions are used to meet the greatest needs, where they will make the biggest impact, thereby strengthening every area of the school. Current state funding comprises only a portion of the University's annual budget - financial support from alumni and friends plays a critical role in maintaining excellent academic programs.

Targeted gifts can increase student scholarships, create endowed chairs in specific disciplines, improve facilities, and accomplish many other goals that are in line with the school priorities and your personal interests. Matching funds may be available to quickly increase the support of such an endowment.

With its $50 million goal, Innovations in Mind envisions a dynamic future for health care. We invite you to join us!
