Give to UIC Nursing
UIC Nursing is engaged in IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC. Generous donors are helping us reach our ambitious goal to raise $33 million through 2022.
On the front lines of a rapidly changing healthcare landscape, nurses are vital to its evolution.
This is a position we don’t take lightly. We’re innovators. Scientists. Forward-thinkers. Our breakthrough discoveries and dedicated practice have changed lives in every corner of the world. But there’s more to be done. And our drive is palpable. We’re ready to reach our highest potential. To challenge the status quo and reshape the health and wellness of populations in our neighborhood and around the world.
You can help.
The UIC College of Nursing is committed to creating and maintaining a diverse student population by attracting and supporting the best and the brightest, regardless of means. Scholarships and fellowships are crucial to this goal and to help students graduate without excessive debt. For the 2017-18 academic year, the college was able to provide 75 of our nearly 1,400 students with more than $550,000 in merit- and financial aid-based scholarships.
Endowed chairs and professorships are the highest honor to bestow on faculty members. Endowments give us the resources to recruit and retain dynamic and accomplished faculty and to provide them the means to excel as educators, researchers and mentors to students and junior faculty. This creates a lasting ripple effect, since highly accomplished faculty attract top students, junior faculty, researchers, recognition and more resources.
New technologies and improved facilities foster creativity and support 21st century learning and discovery. They help us attract and retain the highest caliber researchers, faculty, staff and students, and they reflect our high standing in the nursing community. First-class facilities also provides an environment that fosters pride, comfort and productivity.
Unrestricted gifts to the College of Nursing’s Annual Fund provide the flexibility and resilience needed to meet unexpected and pressing challenges and opportunities. Gifts to the Annual Fund, always deeply appreciated, support a wide variety of student and faculty initiatives.
