The WSU College of Nursing is grateful for the generous support of donors who help the College of Nursing achieve excellence and reach. The Dean’s Excellence Fund is used at the Dean’s discretion for the College’s most urgent needs in teaching, scholarship, and research.

These unrestricted funds enable the Dean to act immediately to meet unanticipated needs or opportunities to promote the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities through education, scholarship, service, and practice.

This last fiscal year (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017), your gifts supported several professional development activities for faculty and staff, research projects, and student activities that expanded participation and connection to more diverse communities. Funds were also used to celebrate faculty, staff and student success.

Here are a few highlights from FY17:

  • Strategic Planning Day for all College of Nursing faculty and staff – August 17, 2016
  • December Convocation Open House – December 11, 2016
  • Participation in the Western Institute of Nursing Conference held in Denver, Colorado – May 22, 2017
  • Faculty and Staff Spring Appreciation Event and Awards – May 11, 2017
