Current Priorities and Opportunities

The College of Nursing is pleased to work with you, and we will help match your goals and interests as partners in creating the next generation of nursing leaders. Below is a partial list of our current priorities. Each is an opportunity to invest in the future of nursing that is direct and measurable. 

Student Emergency Fund

This fund provides financial assistance to College of Nursing students who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses because of temporary hardships related to an emergency situation or crisis. It supports students whose financial hardship is impacting their ability to fully participate in their academic program.

Clinical Performance Lab Fund

Private support for the Lab enables us to acquire new equipment and technologies, including the use of patient simulations and interdisciplinary patient care scenarios that closely reflect what the students will encounter in practice.

Annual Student Scholarships

Your support of the College of Nursing Annual Scholarship Fund helps undergraduate students achieve their educational goal of becoming a registered nurse. In addition to providing tuition assistance, these scholarships allow students to focus on their studies rather than working to defray school expenses.

Dean’s Fund for Excellence

Unrestricted gifts to the Dean’s Fund for Excellence provide essential support for a wide variety of activities, from faculty research to urgently needed equipment to student educational opportunities. The Dean’s ability to award funds enables us to take advantage of many important opportunities that arise on short notice, or which cannot be funded with other resources.

Global Engagement Fund

Provides funding for nursing programs and faculty initiatives in Guatemala, Belize, Sweden and other partner countries. Experiencing health care delivery in another culture provides significant opportunities for students to look more critically at themselves, the work they contribute, and the society in which they live.

Thank you!

We recognize your annual gift of $1,000 or more with membership in the Seattle University President’s Club and we are honored to include you as a leadership donor to the college.
