Funding Priorities


Endowments have long-term impact by providing annual support, in perpetuity. Endowment gifts can be designated for specific funding priorities, such as student scholarships or faculty research, or they can be unrestricted to use as a resource for the college’s current priorities. Please contact Diannah Eagle, Director of Advancement, for more information about endowment opportunities.

Dean’s Circle

Dean’s Circle donors provide annual support used by the dean to address top, strategic priorities. College of Nursing alumni and friends contributing $1,000 or more within the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) will be recognized as members of the Dean’s Circle in the Vol Nurse magazine.

Join or Renew Membership in the Dean’s Circle.

Student Support

Last year, through the generosity of alumni and friends, the College of Nursing awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships. Scholarship support opens a door of opportunity to tomorrow’s Vol Nurse and we need more nurses!

Faculty Support Challenge

Chancellor Donde Plowman has challenged the college’s alumni and friends to raise faculty support. New gifts and new five-year pledges beginning at $100,000 to establish endowments supporting faculty salaries will receive the immediate endowment income from the Office of the Chancellor before the endowment is fully funded. Create an immediate impact by choosing to support faculty.
